For anyone unfamiliar, D.O. stands for Doctor of Osteopathy, which in practice is the same as a Medical Doctor (MD) as they share the same residencies and require the same board-certifications. D.O.’s practice more holistically and can perform a therapeutic technique called osteopathic manipulation.

Ella habla español! Dr. Macklin sees patients six years of age and older. She is experienced in many different types of care, including joint injections, skin care, and contraception management. Dr. Macklin likes to spend her free time camping, Jiu Jitsu, wakeboarding, and skiing. She also loves cooking with her husband, and walking her dog, Gogo.
