Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cole "I treat the patient as a whole, and by that, I mean the mind and spirit, as well as the body. I do a variety of simple surgical procedures such as laceration repair, biopsies, nail removals etc. I do Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT), when appropriate. OMT is a form of manual medicine similar to what a chiropractor or physical therapist might administer"
