(Middleburg Heights, OH) – The Tenpenny Integrative Medical Center is pleased to announce the addition of Dr. Kelli Buckner, D.O., to its staff. Dr. Buckner is well known throughout northeast Ohio for promoting the understanding and education of osteopathic and homeopathic medicine.
Buckner developed an interest in integrative medicine when she was a third-year medical student, and has cultivated that interest ever since. She believes that medical care should address all the aspects that make up a person – mind, body and spirit.
She will be adding a unique perspective to TIMC as it works to advance its structural medicine approach to chronic pain resolution.
“Osteopathic manipulation has been classically regarded as an option for treating pain of all sorts,” Buckner said. “It is also effective in a wide variety of other conditions, from infants with feeding problems and colic, to asthma/COPD, constipation, acid reflux and many other situations.”
Buckner, who is board certified in Family Medicine, added that she will work diligently to find the “right thing at the right time” for each and every TIMC patient.
Buckner is a graduate of the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Erie, Pennsylvania. She completed her residency training in Family Medicine at Summa Western Reserve Hospital in Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, where she served as Chief Resident. She trained heavily in Osteopathic Manipulation (OMT) and created an OMT specialty training track within her Family Medicine residency program.
In addition, Buckner has training in Homeopathic Medicine, focusing on treating acute and chronic medical problems. She has a particular interest in treating special-needs children using osteopathy and homeopathy, and will be working closely with Dr. Janet Levatin to treat newborns with structural issues and baby checkups.
“I’m so glad to have a young, enthusiastic osteopathic physician joining our team at TIMC,” said Dr. Sherri Tenpenny, D.O., the clinic’s founder. “Dr. Buckner has a soft demeanor and a very gentle approach. I know her practice will grow quickly and she will be in demand.”
