Dr. Pearce is delighted to be back in the Bay Area and excited to be teaching our osteopathic medical students at Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine-California. She is a Touro alumnus, trained in Family Medicine through the UC Davis-affiliated residency program in Modesto, CA and with specialty training in Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine/Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (NMM/OMM) through an additional year of residency training at St. Barnabas Hospital in Bronx, NY. She is Board Certified through both the American Osteopathic Board of Family Practice (AOBME) in Family Practice and Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine and the American Osteopathic Board of Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine (AOBNMM) in NMM/OMM.
Dr. Pearce is dedicated to being a model for both osteopathic medicine as a specialty practice and how a Family Medicine physician can incorporate osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) into typical patient care encounters.
Treating pregnant women and newborns to support a healthy pregnancy and provide a structural and functional advantage at the beginning of life is a special area of interest. She also appreciates the particular benefits of OMT for hospitalized patients, acute illness, and surgical preparation and recovery.
In addition to teaching Osteopathic Medicine on-campus, Dr. Pearce appreciates the opportunities to teach students and treat patients in hands-on clinical situations.
