Doctor Of Osteopathic Medicine


A DO (Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine) is a fully qualified physician licensed to treat patients, prescribe medication and perform surgery. DOs receive additional training in the musculoskeletal system, the interconnected system of nerves, muscles and bones that make up the body. Renowned for their emphasis on “patient-centered care,” DOs recognize the importance of taking the whole person into consideration––one’s overall physical health, lifestyle, nutritional habits, exercise routine, genetic disposition, etc.––when preventing, diagnosing and treating illness, disease and injury.
