    Anybody, out here know what it means for a doctor to have D.O. after their name? Clearly, M.D. stands for medical doctor...what the hell is D.O.? I am seeing it more and more frequently and it is bugging the heck outta me.

    some years ago who was a D.O. Seeing him was just like going to a general practicioner.

    Their education is somewhat different as their theory of disease is more like that of a chiropractor. I read they study more anatomy than an M.D.

    They study anatomy, and supposedly look at the body as a whole, and at how the different systems of the body all work together. A lot of people choose them over MDs for this reason.
