Statistic Info

This remarkable increase in the number of osteopathic physicians is due to the increased recognition of their specialized skills in providing patient-centered care. Osteopathic physicians are uniquely trained to recognize and treat the underlying cause of disease, rather than simply treating symptoms. This comprehensive approach to healthcare enables them to provide more effective treatment plans for patients, resulting in improved health outcomes.
