D.O.’s are Osteopathic Physicians who are fully educated and licensed to practice in all areas of medicine. They are certified to practice in the areas of family medicine, surgery, obstetrics/gynecology, pediatrics, internal medicine, as well as other medical specialties and sub-specialties. They treat patients and prescribe medications in medical offices and hospitals across the country, as well as in all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces. While they certainly employ all of the resources of modern medicine to prevent, detect, and treat disease, they also offer their patients added value.

Osteopathic Physicians are specially trained to perform a process called Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT), a method in which they use their hands to diagnose and treat the patient, giving particular attention to joints, bones, muscles and nerves. OMT is utilized to relieve pain and discomfort and perhaps most importantly, it enhances the body’s ability to heal itself.

As an Osteopathic Physician, Dr. Ross holds the following principles in his 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, that is, structure and function of the body are interrelated.

Because Osteopathic Physicians have an appreciation for the interrelationship between body, mind, and spirit they can provide you with the most holistic and comprehensive medical care available.

Welcome to our FAMILY PRACTICE!
