    Meet Our Team 

  • Aquino
    LuAnn Aquino, M.D., Ph.D., is a graduate of the Medical College of Georgia. She completed her residency in internal medicine at Atlanta Medical Center. She earned a doctorate in biochemistry from the University of Illinois Medical Center. Dr. Aquino is board certified in internal medicine.
    Kyle
    William E. Kyle, D.O., earned his osteopathic medicine degree from Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Bradenton, Florida. He completed his medical residencies at the University of Tennessee and East Tennessee State University. He is board certified in internal medicine.
  • What is a D.O.?

    Osteopathic physicians hold a “D.O.” degree. They are fully qualified physicians who are licensed to prescribe medication and perform surgery. Just like a physician with an “M.D.” degree, osteopathic physicians must complete four years of undergraduate education followed by four years of medical school. After medical school, they complete internships, residencies, and fellowships. Just like M.D.s, they must pass licensing exams in order to see patients. Osteopathic physicians may choose to practice internal medicine, family medicine, surgery, pediatrics, or some other specialty.

    Osteopathic medicine focuses on the “whole person” rather than specific symptoms or illness. In medical school, D.O. students learn therapeutic techniques and physical manipulation to help encourage the body’s natural healing abilities. The field espouses disease prevention and wellness.
