What is a D.O.?

D.O.'s are Osteopathic Physicians who are fully educated and licensed to practice all aspects of medicine. Osteopathic Physicians are certified to specialize in family medicine, obstetrics/gynecology, pediatrics, surgery, internal medicine, and all of the other medical specialties and sub-specialties.

D.O.'s treat patients and prescribe medicine in offices and hospitals across the country and in the U.S. armed services. D.O.'s provide health care services such as disease prevention, diagnosis, and treatment strategies for the entire family through all life stages - from infancy to adolescence, from teen years to mature adult and end of life health care.

D.O.'s hold the following principles as central to their practice of medicine:

  • You are a person who is a unification of body, mind and spirit.
  • Your body, when properly treated and maintained, is capable of self-regulation, self-maintenance, and self-healing.
  • If all of the parts of your body are functioning optimally, you will maintain the highest possible level of health.

D.O.'s treat you, the whole person, not just a disease or symptoms.
