Leslie R. Gass, D.O. Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine

About Dr. Gass:

Leslie Gass D.O. is board certified in Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine and Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine.  She has over 15 years of experience as both a physician and an audiologist. She was first introduced to Osteopathy by an osteopathic physician who used manual medicine to treat children with ear infections who were seen in her audiology clinic. She became interested in a career in Osteopathy after she experienced the healing forces of the treatment during a bout with pneumonia. While Dr. Gass is trained in all Osteopathic manipulative techniques, she specializes with an emphasis on gentle, low-force approaches such as cranial osteopathy, biodynamic osteopathy, balanced ligament us/membranous tension, and myofascial release.

Dr. Gass is a graduate of the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine.  She completed her internship at Mercy hospital in Portland, Maine. After a year of family practice training at Eastern Maine Medical Center in Bangor, Maine, she went on to complete a residency in Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine/Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine at North Shore University Plainview Hospital. Her residency training also included working at St Barnabas hospital in the Bronx and teaching at the New York College of Osteopathic Medicine. During her residency she had the opportunity to treat a wide variety of patients with osteopathic manipulation in both clinical and hospital settings. These patients included pregnant and postpartum woman, newborns, pediatrics, post-surgical, post-trauma, adult and geriatric patients.
