We are pleased to welcome a new provider, Josh Seibel, PA-C, to the Deschutes Family Care team. Josh joined Deschutes Family Care in March 2021 to bring additional access to the high quality of care that our patients expect and deserve. Josh is a natural at building a trusting provider-patient relationship and takes the time to explain and answer questions. He focuses on holistic treatments, especially through healthy diets and exercise. He is supervised by Dr. Mark E. Gonsky, DO and works closely with the entire team. He is accepting new patients and is available for follow-up visits for varying conditions.
After receiving his degree from Union College in Nebraska, Josh returned to his home state of Oregon. He, his wife, and their two dogs enjoy taking full advantage of Bend’s many outdoor activities like paddle boarding, hiking, and skiing. He is proud to call central Oregon home and looks forward to meeting you.
Our philosophy is to seek health and to assist each person in becoming their own healer. This is in line with osteopathic principles:
- The body is a unit; the person is a unit of body, mind, and spirit.
- The body is capable of self-regulation, self-healing, and health maintenance.
- Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated.
- Rational treatment is based upon an understanding of the basic principles of body unity, self-regulation, and the interrelationship of structure and function.
