Julie gerth, family medicine physician

Julie Gerth, D.O., recently joined the family medicine clinic at the Apple Valley Medical Center. She is a graduate of Evangel University and Des Moines University, College of Osteopathic Medicine, and she is board certified by the American Board of Family Practice. “I chose family medicine because I love getting to know the entire family: kids, parents, grandparents,” she said. “I also think it’s important to prevent disease as much as possible and make sure people keep up to date with their checkups and screenings. I think generalists/primary care physicians are important because we treat the whole body and know how all of its parts connect and interact.”

Dr. Gerth is a doctor of osteopathic medicine. Like M.D.s, doctors of osteopathic medicine are fully licensed physicians who practice in all areas of medicine. According to the American Osteopathic Association, D.O.s receive special training in the musculoskeletal system, the body’s interconnected system of nerves, muscles and bones.
