Warren Klausner, D.O.
I am originally from New York City and began my career in the business world after attending the Wharton Business School of the University of Pennsylvania. Unfulfilled in a business career, I embarked on a journey of self-discovery, culminating in a second career in osteopathic medicine.
I completed my premed course work at the Claremont Colleges in California, including a senior thesis on osteopathic medicine. I then attended medical school at the Western University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific.
I was awarded a teaching fellowship and stayed an extra year to conduct research, do advanced training, and teach osteopathy. Graduating in 1994, I next completed three years of additional postgraduate residency training at Downey Community hospital in California and was board-certified in Family Practice specialty medicine in 1997.
I began my private practice as a traditional osteopath in 1995 during my residency and continue in private practice today. Functional medicine became an integral part of my osteopathic practice in part because I personally used this branch of medicine as part of my own healing process, experiencing how depletion of vital nutrients can make it difficult for one's body to hold treatment and heal to one's full potential.
