What is a D.O. Physician?

Doctor of Osteopathy (D.O.) is a physician who has been trained and practices Osteopathic medicine. In addition to their allopathic counterparts (M.D.), a D.O. must obtain a four year bachelor’s degree before entering a four year medical school. Post-graduates choose a speciality to gain additional training. D.O. physicians can be found in every specialty available, however, 60% choose a form of primary care. By training, Osteopathic physicians focus on holistic patient treatment geared towards determining the underlying cause of their symptoms. Another valuable asset D.O. physicians possess is the unique capability of performing manipulations while utilizing a hands on approach to help aid in diagnosis and treatment of their patients as compared to more traditional pharmaceutical intervention.
