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.
As a primary care provider, my approach focuses on partnering with my patients to address their health concerns and goals in an environment of trust and safety. I am deeply passionate about resolving healthcare inequities, and I strive to use my medical training to help patients make the best decisions possible to take care of their mind, body and spirit. As a queer physician, my main focus has been providing LGBTQ-centered primary care that is compassionate, collaborative, and sensitive to the unique needs of queer and gender-expansive patients. As an osteopathic physician, I also bring expertise that values the body's inherent ability to heal itself. Through this philosophy, evidence-based practices and a strong patient-provider relationship, we can achieve wellness together.
