What is an Osteopathic Doctor?

Discover the DO Difference

Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine use a unique whole-person approach to help prevent illness and injury.

What is a DO? Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine, or DOs, are fully licensed physicians who practice in all areas of medicine. Emphasizing a whole-person approach to treatment and care, DOs are trained to listen and partner with their patients to help them get healthy and stay well. Learn more about the DO difference here, and​​​​​ compare physician training requirements to those required for other types of clinicians.

DOs receive special training in the musculoskeletal system, your body’s interconnected system of nerves, muscles and bones. By combining this knowledge with the latest advances in medical technology, they offer patients the most comprehensive care available in medicine today.

Osteopathic physicians focus on prevention, tuning into how a patient’s lifestyle and environment can impact their wellbeing. DOs strive to help you be truly healthy in mind, body and spirit—not just free of symptoms.


About Us


Our Story

My journey began on a walk with God and my wife!  We had a dream to simplify patient care by opening a private practice where patients can get a live person on the phone every time they call, schedule same day appointments, and feel like their healthcare matters to a group of professionals who are wholly committed to providing a great service.  We wanted an office where, from start to finish, the patient feels individually valued and secure that their healthcare needs are being met.  We pray as a staff every morning before our office opens that God will give us wisdom and insight to do just that for our patients at Cox Family Medicine.

Our mission

We strive to provide CHRIST-centered, meaningful, comprehensive medical care to families of all ages in our community.
