I am an Osteopathic Physician ( D.O.) who is known to my patients as “Dr Judy”.  I am a fully licensed physician, able to practice as a General Practitioner. I have chosen to specialize in the "hands on" approach called Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) to treat patients without prescribing medications. I see patients of all ages, accept Medicare and submit to your insurance company as a courtesy to patients.
I graduated from Kansas City College of Osteopathic Medicine in 1980
and initially practiced as a licensed General Practitioner in California,
then Alaska and finally Texas as my family moved with my husband's
job. While living in Aberdeen, Scotland I stayed at home with my children with medical problems, one with special needs, maintained my licenses and continued to treat people.
All patients receive Cranial-sacral Osteopathy, a very subtle type of therapy that is "hands on".  I place my hands on the patient’s head and other body parts while they lay on a treatment table (fully clothed).  It is quiet and peaceful.  Some patients report feeling warmth where my hands are in contact with them, some feel a release of tissues and/or tension, and others feel nothing.  I also use Myofascial Release and Muscle Energy as well as other Osteopathic techniques which involve the patient’s participation and may go deeper into a body region.
To learn more about OMM see Learn More.
Some of the individuals I treat have neck and back and hip problems, ear infections, sinus problems, asthma, shoulder, hand and arm pain and/or injuries, reflux and colic; children with misshapen heads and autistic spectrum disorders. I have treated cancer related problems and terminally ill patients and I have treated my own children since birth. They have also been treated by D.O. colleagues and mentors. My mother obtained relief and was able to move more freely, breath and sleep better after OMM when she was struggling with chest wall pain after her triple bypass surgery. In the early years of practice I developed severe pain with sciatica and was unable to drive.  When one of my colleagues treated me successfully with Cranial Osteopathy and I experienced relief, I decided to learn more and began my additional training.  Having received this type of healing, I find joy in helping others, such as those who come with a frozen shoulder or a limp who regain the use of their arm or walk out more balanced after treatment.
I continue to attend courses on a regular basis and I am a member of The Cranial Academy, American Osteopathic Association, Academy of Osteopathy, Texas Osteopathic Medical Association and, as well as the Katy Wellness Forum and the Katy Chamber of Commerce. I have been practicing in Katy, Texas for nearly four years.
