Dennis Barraco, DO, PhD
General Medicine & Urgent Care
My formative years were spent in Michigan. Born, raised, and ultimately attended, taught, and completed neurological research at Michigan State University. During this important time I received a Bachelor Degree in Psychology, a Master Degree in Physiology, a Doctor of Philosophy Degree in Physiology, and most assuredly a Doctorate in Osteopathic Medicine. Doctors of osteopathic medicine (DOs) practice a “whole person” approach to health care. Instead of just treating specific symptoms I concentrate on treating the whole person.
In 1985 I moved to Arizona were I worked mostly as an Emergency Physician and served as Medical Director. Over time I began to miss the connection established between the patient and primary care provider, so in January 2014 I began practicing Family Medicine at the Community Hospital Clinic in Wickenburg, Arizona. The majority of my patients are adults. I perform wellness examinations, bio-identical hormone therapy, gynecology, geriatric medicine, dermatological care, and minor surgical procedures. I am Board Certified in Anti-aging and Regenerative Medicine.
