“When patients can experience a change in their health, it can be profound in the maintaining and healing process.”
In addition to providing primary care, Dr. Rosendahl specializes in osteopathic neuromusculoskeletal medicine, focusing on whole-body care and the interrelationships of all the systems through osteopathic manual therapy (OMT).* Bringing together a deeper understanding of how the body's structure affects its function, with knowledge of disease processes, Dr. Rosendahl can treat the body using manipulation along with medications.
*Limited practice availability for OMT, by referral only from a specialist. Dr. Rosendahl does not practice naturopathic medicine.

A native Oregonian, Dr. Rosendahl’s interest in medicine came from her veterinarian father, and she was part of the first class of osteopathic physicians in Lebanon, Oregon. Although she moved away for residency, it was her goal to make it back to Oregon to practice medicine.
During medical school, she had the opportunity to take an extra year to learn and teach osteopathic neuromusculoskeletal medicine to the first and second-year students. There she had great mentors that encouraged her to practice primary care and osteopathic manipulative medicine. “I enjoy the complex medical care in the ever-growing geriatric population as much as emphasizing preventative medicine. With a focus on whole-body care using osteopathy, I value empowering patients to be in control of their health.” Part of that empowerment comes from educating patients on their medical resources and options. “In medicine, you must ‘start where you are, with what you have.’ The continuity of care and guidance through the medical system can be tough, but helping people navigate it can be very rewarding.”
Many patients that see Dr. Rosendahl describe her as kind-hearted and patient, and she values the time she has with each one. “I embrace the good days and tough days in medicine and appreciate every patient because they are always teaching me something.”
As a lifelong learner and passionate teacher, Dr. Rosendahl enjoys participating in medical education. Outside of her practice, she enjoys cooking and the outdoors, including hiking and walking along coastal beaches with her husband.
