Dorothy K. Hines, DO,

Osteopathic Physician

I’ve been a scientist all my life. My parents always thought I should be a doctor. After college, I chose a different path and became a chemist. Several years later, I realized that medicine was my true calling. I returned to school and became a doctor.

Board certified since 2003

Dr. Hines is a specialist in internal medicine. Her focus is on whole-person care. Dr. Hines believes medicine is a partnership between the doctor and patient. Every patient deserves a doctor who’ll listen to them and fully explain their treatment choices.
