BETTY TSANG, D.O.
What's the difference between a MD and a DO? The simple answer is that both an MD (Doctor of Medicine) and a DO (Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine) are doctors licensed to practice in the United States. They are similarly educated and certified, but there are differences in their training and philosophy of patient care. Like MDs, DOs can practice in any medical specialty, but a majority choose primary care specialties. The AOA (American Osteopathic Association) estimates that 6 out of 10 osteopathic physicians practice family medicine, general internal medicine, pediatrics, or obstetrics and gynecology.
