Morganton, NC (PRWEB) April 30, 2012
Dr. G. Michael Gould, DO of Burke Primary Care (http://www.burkeprimarycare.com) has successfully completed the Diabetes Module: Knowledge Assessment and Clinical Simulation as part of his Maintenance of Certification for Family Physicians.
Offered by the American Board of Family Medicine, certification is a voluntary process that attests to the physician achieving a recognized level of professional excellence. Certification includes testing the medical knowledge and problem-solving ability of the physician including topics covering diagnosis, management and prevention of illness. Dr. Gould was also required to provide evidence of professional standing, a commitment to lifelong learning and an evaluation of his practice performance.
Dr. Gould graduated from West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine in Lewisburg, West Virginia and completing his residency at Anderson Area Medical Center in South Carolina. He has a special interest in Sports Medicine and Musculoskeletal Medicine, and has additional training in Osteopathic Manipulation.
As an Osteopathic Physician (DO), Dr. Gould focuses on the individual as a unification of body, mind and spirit. DO’s recognize that the body, when properly treated and maintained, is capable of self-regulation, self-maintenance and self-healing. If all of the parts of the body are functioning optimally, the person will maintain the highest possible level of health. DO’s treat the whole person, not just a disease or symptoms.
When he is away from the office, Dr. Gould enjoys cycling, mountain biking, hiking, canoeing, playing guitar and spending time with his family. Dr. Gould is one of the 14 dedicated health care providers at Burke Primary Care, Burke County’s oldest and largest independent family practice.
