Who We Are
Jackie O’Neill’s earliest exposure to healthcare was through her father who owns a neighborhood pharmacy in downtown Los Angeles. Jackie always knew she wanted a career in medicine, but it was her interest in botany that clarified her intent and aided in her decision to pursue a degree in Chinese medicine.
Since founding Collaborative Care in 2007, Jackie has helped hundreds of patients achieve full term pregnancies. Her experience working with women and couples facing a broad range of infertility challenges has enabled Jackie to create a unique treatment protocol that has high rates of success using a combination of acupuncture, Chinese herbal medicine, and nutritional support. Jackie’s knowledge of Traditional Chinese Medicine and experience treating a diverse range of infertility cases is quite unique, and makes her a much-valued resource for her patients.
Jackie received her Master’s Degree in Traditional Oriental Medicine from the Pacific College of Oriental Medicine where she taught a series of Chinese herb classes. She is nationally board certified in acupuncture and Chinese herbology, a member of the American Society of Reproductive Medicine, and currently practices in Chicago.
