Joseph Mercola, DO Biography Add Book
Dr. Mercola is an osteopathic physician, also known as a DO. DOs are complete physicians who, along with MDs, are licensed to prescribe medication and perform surgery in all 50 states. But DOs bring something extra to the practice of medicine. Osteopathic physicians practice a "whole person" approach to medicine, treating the entire person rather that just the symptoms. With a focus on preventive health care, DOs help patients develop attitudes and lifestyles that don't just fight illness, but help prevent it, too.

He is also board-certified in family medicine and served as the chairman of the family medicine department at St. Alexius Medical Center for five years. Dr. Mercola is trained in both traditional and natural medicine and has been practicing natural medicine actively since 1990. For his insight on a variety of healthcare issues, he has been interviewed on national and local news, including:

  • ABC's World News Tonight with Peter Jennings

  • CNN

  • CBS, NBC and ABC local news shows

  • Dozens of Nationally Broadcast Radio Shows


Practice Profile:

Dr. Mercola is dedicated to finding long-term solutions for my patients who suffer from chronic illnesses. A number of prescription medications are beneficial tools that can help to provide relief from some acute illnesses, and as a fully licensed physician he occasionally prescribes them for these purposes. However, he believes that most medications provide only temporary relief at best, and as an osteopathic physician, he seeks to treat the whole person, not just the symptoms.
