What Colleagues Say

“Malik is one of the few western born Chinese medicine practitioners who has trained extensively in China during the 1980s and 1990s. Due to his extraordinary level of expertise, he is an expert treating difficult and recalcitrant diseases…his dedication to the advancement of Chinese medicine and resultant clinical achievements have been exceptional!”

Dr. Heiner Fruehauf, Ph.D., L.Ac. Founding Professor of Classical Chinese Medicine

“As a spiritual friend and a patient, I have experienced Malik’s skill as a healer and the depth of his insight in both his professional capacity and his inner being.  I enjoy his Daoist approach to philosophy.  Malik’s loving presence, his freedom of intellect and integrity, common sense and humor have been a welcome infusion.”

”I am impressed with his understanding of traditional Chinese medicine, herbal medicine, the classics of TCM and Daoist philosophy, as well as his ability to understand the deeper meaning and application of qi.  He has a strong grasp of qigong and traditional Chinese medicine as well as its esoteric meanings and practical aspects.”

“Dr. Cotter attended the Chengdu University of TCM and learned Qigong and Chinese herbal medicine from professor Zhongyu Li, a famous qigong master in China, particularly Sichuan province.  Dr. Cotter is a great healer and a very good teacher.  He is industrious, dutiful, conscientious, intelligent, and reliable.”

"I had a teaching staff of over 30 instructors over the course of 33 years at the Acupressure Institute in Berkeley, CA and Dr. Cotter's teachings have been truly some of the most masterful. It has been a great pleasure to have him instruct at my online school as he has demonstrated a firm grasp on the concepts and application of Traditional Oriental Medicine and conveys them in a simple, understandable, and enlivening fashion that have empowered hundreds of our students."
