SANTA BARBARA, Calif. - The Santa Barbara Herb Clinic will reopen its doors after the tragic murder of Dr. Henry Han and his wife in March 2016 shut down the business.
Pierre Haobsh, 27, was arrested following the murders and remains in jail.
The administrators of the Estates of Dr. Han and his wife Jennie Yu confirmed the news of the clinic's reopening with NewsChannel 3 on Monday.
The Santa Barbara Herb Clinic, which had been a popular go-to spot for many residents, will reopen on May 1st under the direction of Tram Pham, an accomplished licensed acupuncturist, and herbalist with a deep understanding of Chinese medicine.
Pham had previously treated some of Dr. Han's former patients and was encouraged to reach out to the Han estates upon learning they were searching for a qualified acupuncturist to reopen the clinic.
“I am truly humbled by the opportunity to lead the Santa Barbara Herb Clinic and serve Santa Barbara’s all-natural, holistic health care needs," said Pham. "I recognize this is a great responsibility, and I consider it an honor to follow in the footsteps of a pioneering healer like Dr. Han as he was truly a leading light in the field. I will dedicate myself to continuing his impactful work."
Patient files have been formally transferred to Pham consistent with state and federal confidentiality rules, to ensure a smooth resumption of Clinic operations.
Pham studied biological sciences and global studies at UC Santa Barbara before obtaining her Master’s from the Yo San University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Los Angeles.
The Santa Barbara Herb Clinic will reopen at its new location, 3760 State Street, Suite 102 in Santa Barbara.
