Dr. Maria T. Gentile

Osteopathic Physician

Dr. Gentile is a board-certified Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) Specialist. She dedicated her latter years of study to this profession after osteopathic treatment helped her recover from a serious whiplash injury resulting from a motor vehicle accident in December 1992.

Born and raised in New York City, Dr. Gentile stayed in her home town to complete a Bachelor's and a Master's degree in Microbiology. She worked as a microbiology supervisor and breast cancer researcher at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in NYC and completed her Premedical study at Hunter College, also in New York.

Dr. Gentile attended medical school at the University of North Texas Health Science Center/Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine where she remained an extra year to train in and teach OMM as a Predoctoral Teaching Fellow. After medical school, Dr. Gentile completed a Traditional Internship in a Family Practice program at Warren Hospital in Phillipsburg, N.J. She then attended and graduated from an American Osteopathic Association (A.O.A) accredited Residency in Neuromusculoskeletal and Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine at St. Barnabas Hospital in Bronx, N.Y.

While at St. Barnabas, a 466 bed, level 1 trauma center, Dr. Gentile's duties included the evaluation and treatment of newborns in the nursery, mothers before and after delivery, children on the pediatric wards, medical, surgical and trauma patients in the intensive care unit and on the patient floor as well as the operation of 3 outpatient continuing care clinics.

Dr. Gentile is interested in the integration of standard and alternative medical philosophies. She has been certified by the American Board of Holistic Medicine and is a member of the American Holistic Medical Association. With the opening of her practice, Dr. Gentile has fulfilled her dream of practicing Osteopathy in beautiful Colorado.
