What is Osteopathy?

Osteopathic Medicine is a unique form of American medical care that was developed by Dr. Andrew Taylor Still in the late 19th century. In his philosophy he emphasized the importance of the unity of the body, mind and spirit, the ability of the body to heal itself, and the necessity for the physician to understand the interrelationship of a person’s anatomy and physiology.


Dr. Waldron

"I strive to connect with my patients, meeting people wherever they are in their lives in order to heighten the quality of our partnership in health."

Brian Waldron, D.O.

 

Dr. Bhardwaj

"Listening to a patient with an open mind and heart is an essential component of healing, you cannot fully heal if you have not been heard...our stories are intertwined deeply with our health."

Rajni Bhardwaj, D.O.

Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.s) are fully-licensed physicians who can prescribe medication and perform surgery. We may specialize in any of the medical  and surgical specialty areas, including internal medicine, family practice, orthopedic surgery, and pediatrics, to name a few. D.O.s practice a preventive approach to health care and focus on treating people, not just symptoms. We use state of the art medical diagnostic and therapies, but we also employ osteopathic manipulative medicine (OMM).
