Greenhaven Family Practice opened April 2014 is located in the Greenhaven-Pocket neighborhood of Sacramento.
My office is small with minimal staff. This is part of my philosophy to keep things simple and manageable. I believe by doing so, I get to know each patient personally and am able to treat more effectively their medical conditions. Achieving health can be difficult. The physician may diagnose and prescribe a treatment plan but it is also the patient’s responsibility to carry out the plan and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Of course, there are other factors involved in maintaining good health and I hope we can work together towards this goal.
Welcome to my practice. Please drop by, and think of us for your medical needs.
So, What's a DO?
Are you a dentist? A bone doctor? A chiropractor? I get that a lot. When most people think of a doctor, they have in mind someone with an MD after their name. But a DO-Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine-is also a physician, fully licensed and trained to diagnose illnesses, disorders, and provide preventive care. A DO undergoes medical training, internship, residency and can specialize in fields such as pediatrics, family medicine, psychiatry, surgery or ophthalmology.
Osteopathic medicine began as a health reform movement in the 19th century, emphasizing preventive care and allowing the body to heal without overuse of medications. In addition to the medical curriculum, osteopathic students are trained in Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT). OMT involves using the hands to diagnose and treat illness or injury. Osteopathic medicine also emphasizes the integration of the entire body's systems, and many of the osteopathic schools place special emphasis on preventive medicine.
