Dr. Teresa Angermann wants to know her patients-not their medical problems, but the rest of their lives too.
“I enjoy working with patients of all ages, from newborns to the elderly, and I enjoy getting to know patients on a more personal level. That’s why I chose family medicine.”
“The field of family medicine allows time for meeting with a patient”s family members, which helps in understanding their social interactions and how their family lives shape their well-being. A patient’s well-being is greatly affected by the social network and support system that is their family.”
Dr. Angermann chose to pursue osteopathic medicine because of her strong interest in physical therapy and her desire to help each patient create an environment that allows the body to heal itself by incorporating elements of preventative nutrition, manual therapy, exercise prescription, and medication. She encourages patients to take an active role in their health care, and emphasizes close communication as the key to building a strong patient-physician relationship. She enjoys seeing patients with a variety of medical concerns,but has a special interest in women’s health, musculoskeletal disorders, and diabetes.
Following her residency in Reno, Dr. Angermann decided to remain in the area to enjoy the Sierra’s abundance of outdoor activities, particularly hiking, running, and mountain biking in the Reno foothills and the Tahoe basin. She also enjoys traveling, keeping abreast of the latest developments in primary medicine, and participating in medical missions to third-world countries.
