Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine, or DOs, are fully licensed and board-certified physicians who practice in all areas of medicine. DOs emphasize a whole-person approach to treatment and receive extra training in the musculoskeletal system called osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT). DOs at One Medical typically practice in the field of family medicine, geriatrics, pediatrics, or internal medicine, and may also integrate OMT.
I seek to connect with patients on a personal level. To me, active listening, partnership, and joint decision-making are vital to the doctor-patient relationship. I enjoy developing a comprehensive, evidence-based plan that both considers the whole person and empowers patients to reach their health and wellness goals. I like to emphasize lifestyle changes before medication interventions when possible. My special interests include preventative care, women’s health, mental health care, weight management, and chronic disease management.
