About Us

Osteopathic Healthcare, LLC was founded by Elizabeth Caron, D.O. to serve the community and to be an educational center for Osteopathy.


  The principles of biodynamic Osteopathy as set forth by Drs Eric Bleschmidt, Rollin Becker and James Jealous are the basis for Dr. Caron’s work.  Having had 25 years of direct mentorship from James Jealous, D.O. her work is influenced by him and her 10 year career as an artist in professional modern dance.  She has also received mentorship from Jacque Duval, D.O.,   Hugh Ettlinger, D.O and Ann Wales, D.O. as well.   Dr. Caron’s study of Osteopathy in the Cranial Field is in the direct lineage from Dr. William Sutherland, the founder of Osteopathy in the Cranial Field.  Craniosacral therapy is an off shoot of Osteopathy as taught by John Upledger, D.O. which is related to but a distinctly different type of practice.

Our Mission

Is to provide full spectrum outpatient medical care to serve the community. We are a general practice traditional osteopathic medicine clinic with board certified physicians ready to take care of any and all medical conditions affecting all ages, pediatrics to adults. 


We apply the principles of Osteopathy to each individual through the philosophy and hands on application of medicine. We stress a diagnostic and therapeutic approach based upon the patient and their resources with the primary role of the physician as an effective communicator and facilitator of the body's inherent ability to heal and maintain the balance in the whole person. 


We became doctors to freely practice medicine and provide the most comprehensive care to patients. It was immediately clear that the Osteopathic Medical philosophy was the way in which to bring forth our calling. And we wish to share that with our patients.


We have been practicing medicine since 2000 and have worked across the country in many different settings.  And what has been increasingly clear is that the systems we were working in does not provide us the independence we need to honor the doctor patient relationship, which is vital to increase patient outcomes and wellness. Furthermore over the past 10 years, medical practice has changed dramatically becoming restrictive, rushed, and frustrating leaving most patients and doctor’s not satisfied.


We have chosen a practice model that affords the patient time to communicate with a Physician in hopes of creating a setting that is meaningful to both the patient and the physician. We hope that you will appreciate the difference.

Our Team

“My goal is to treat every patient uniquely, using the Osteopathic principles. Anybody can find disease; the goal of an Osteopathic physician is to find Health. “

M. Elizabeth Caron, D.O.
