Meet Dr. Sarah Curtis, D.O. She is the newest physician to join OIM’s staff. Dr. Curtis specializes in treating expectant moms, newborns, post-partum moms and children. She has extensive experience treating infants who have colic and latching difficulties. She is board certified in neuromusculoskeletal medicine/ osteopathic manipulative medicine and trained extensively in osteopathic cranial manipulative medicine. In addition to treating infants, pregnant moms and post-partum moms, Dr. Curtis jokes that she treats kids, “age zero to 110”.
Dr. Curtis says she is always surprised at what osteopathic manipulation can do for her patients. She loves working on patients and watching them get immediate relief from what has been causing their pain or discomfort. She works off a philosophy of finding the health for her patients. She says so often as a physician you can get bogged down by focusing on what isn’t working well with a patient’s body. But that when she focuses on what is working with her patients, treatment gets a lot easier.
Previous to being in private practice at OIM, Dr. Curtis taught osteopathic medicine at Rocky Vista College of Osteopathic Medicine in Parker, Colorado and at the New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine in Old Westbury, New York. Teaching medical students was an incredible experience that deepened her knowledge of osteopathic medicine because she was constantly challenged by great questions from her medical students. Through teaching at multiple osteopathic colleges, she also learned new treatment techniques that broadened her knowledge of osteopathic manipulation that she uses on her patients.
Dr. Curtis is the wife of OIM’s Dr. Daniel Lopez. She and Dr. Lopez are the proud parents of a one-year old daughter and a four-year old daughter. When she isn’t at work she can be found hanging out with her daughters and discovering new restaurants around town. You might also bump into this self-described foodie at her local Whole Foods Market.
