What is a D.O.?by Tony Brown, BA, EMT | February 14, 2006
A Doctor of Osteopathy (D.O.) just might be your family practitioner, cardiologist or even your obstetrician. Surprise! They are not all M.D.s.
The increasingly growing hand of biopsychosocial medicine is pulling back the curtain on various types of medical fields. An example is osteopathic medicine. If you’d like to see a physician for your illness, there are only two fully-licensed choices in America who are are authorized to do everything from prescribe medicine and deliver babies to serving as your family practitioner. One of them is a D.O. and the other is an M.D. Let’s chat about why osteopathic medicine seems to be stepping up to fill the biopsychosocial gap in American medicine today. We’d like to hear from those of you who have been treated by an ostepath or are otherwise familiar with the field.
