Website: Healing Arts medical Email: Notable quotes from Dr. Mokari’s interview:

I just started to use my osteopathic training and I started to see patients respond to that – to heal.
The immediate gratification of having somebody walk away from the interaction feeling better is a really different feeling.
I would say that having this more holistic approach where I have a foot in both worlds… really allows me to think in a way that… others don’t get to do.
