She trained under physicians from the Cancer Treatment Centers of America and Oregon Health Sciences University Hospital, utilizing conventional as well as naturopathic cancer care. In order to provide the most comprehensive care for her patients, Dr. Fung has additional training in naturopathic cancer support, intravenous nutritional therapy, joint rejuvenation stem cell/prolotherapy/PRP, and bio-identical hormone balancing.
Dr. Fung has monthly columns in the La Quinta Gem and Desert Health News, and lectures throughout the valley.
