- Please note, Dr. Shadoan is now accepting students again.
- Dr. Gilmartin does not accept students.
Please DO NOT call our office. Prior to contacting Dr. Shadoan via email, you must read/watch the appropriate items linked below. Then send your CV and a brief statement of your interest in Osteopathy (DO students and residents must list all prior OMM Courses, Conferences and Rotations). Once Dr. Shadoan has reviewed your request, he will let you know how to proceed.
Due to high demand, students may need to schedule up to 2 months in advance for shadowing and often longer for a rotation. Most of your questions should be answered on the website, so you will not need to contact our busy office staff. If you need to cancel, please give us sufficient notice so that we may schedule another student.

Note: there is no onsite receptionist. The waiting room is the first room on the left once you enter our suite. On your first day, please wait there until Dr. Shadoan comes to get you.
While in our office, it is essential that students are aware of patients and the other physician utilizing our limited space. Students are to remain out of the way when in the waiting room, giving up their seat to patients.
Students are only allowed in the treatment room with the specific permission of each patient. If the patient does not consent to your presence in the treatment room, feel free to take a short walk outside, especially if the waiting room is crowded.
For all day parking, either use a public lot or see the various maps showing where there are no meters or 2 hour parking limits on our Directions and Parking page.
