Who do you use a MD or a DO ?

Which you feel gives better medical service? And what is the difference? I use a MD, since that is who we mostly have in my area.

I go to a D.O. He is a great doc but he is conservative. He doesn't just hand out scrips unless he knows the pathophysiology behind whats causing my ailment. He likes to run a lot of tests, luckily I have good insurance.

AFAIK the difference is that D.O's are supposed to take a more homeopathic approach but really the difference is minimal.

It doesn't really matter in this day and age. The AMA (that's the MD national group) did a study in headed up by John Cline (the then AMA president) that found there was no significant differences between allo/osteo educational programs and this was way back in 1953

Oftentimes, if you want your physician to spend more time with you, you should go to a PA. I've found that many of them are able to visit with the patient longer, and provide commensurate trx as compared to a doc.

Generally, my family and I use a Nurse- practitioner. Great service and she knows the names of my children. She works a local Dr's office.
