Holistic Approach - Experience the D.O. Difference

Osteopathic training emphasizes a personal "holistic" approach to patient care. Patients are treated as individuals, as opposed to focusing primarily on their disease. Doctors of Osteopathy attend four-year accredited medical schools similar to their M.D. counterparts. In addition to traditional medical training, osteopathic physician students receive specialized training that emphasizes structure/function relationships of the human body. By incorporating manipulation techniques as an additional treatment modality, one can affect organ systems and thereby influence healing.

Specializing in the management of ear, nose, throat, and plastic surgery needs of both adults and children, Dr. Cohen utilizes the "holistic" approach to patient care. This methodology considers all aspects of a patient's condition and its effect on the patient as a whole, rather than focusing specifically on the disease. This style, combined with the traditional training of the structure/function relationships of organs and diseases, makes facial plastic surgeon William C. Cohen, D.O. the ideal choice for your ear, nose, throat, and plastic surgery needs, especially if you live anywhere in Orange County.
