Bracken Mental Health was founded in 2002 by Jill Bracken D.O. with the vision of creating a medical practice that treats every patient with dignity and first-rate care.
The office staff at Bracken Mental Health are highly-trained and exceptionally friendly. We understand that for many, visiting a doctor can be a stressful experience.
Our comfortable surroundings and compassionate medical professionals will ease your fears.
From Brent A. Bauer, M.D.
A doctor of osteopathic medicine (D.O.) is a fully trained and licensed doctor who has attended and graduated from a U.S. osteopathic medical school. A doctor of medicine (M.D.) has attended and graduated from a conventional medical school.
The major difference between osteopathic and allopathic doctors is that some osteopathic doctors provide manual medicine therapies, such as spinal manipulation or massage therapy, as part of their treatment.
After medical school, both M.D.s and D.O.s must complete residency training in their chosen specialties. They must also pass the same licensing examination before they can treat people and prescribe medications.
