About Nori Onishi, D.O. with Blackwater Osteopathic Clinic
Nori Onishi, D.O., opened his clinic, Blackwater Osteopathic Clinic, July 2008 in Morgantown, West Virginia.
He is a 1999 graduate of The College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific, Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, California and completed his internship and residency at Greenbrier Valley Medical Center and West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine, both in Lewisburg, West Virginia in 2002.
After his training, he worked with Indian Health on a Navajo Reservation in Chinle, Arizona, in Bethel and Klawock, Alaska, with the Veteran’s Administration in Seattle, Washington, in North Carolina, Virginia and West Virginia.
He also spent four years working at Tri-County Health Clinic in Rock Cave, West Virginia where he enjoyed working with and getting to know his patients.
He enjoys harassing his chickens and tending his garden and when time permits, he kayaks whitewater in the rivers and skis in the mountains of West Virginia.
Dr. Onishi’s interest in Integrative Medicine started when he was practicing in a rural clinic in Rock Cave, WV, as a family physician. He noticed that many patients still had health problems even with standard of care medicine.
Results from these patients’ blood work showed that they were within normal limits but they still felt horrible.
He began attending Anti-Aging and Integrative Medicine conferences to learn how to help these patients. One of the biggest tools he learned to help his patients was balancing the hormones to an optimal level.
His goal at Blackwater Osteopathic Clinic is for every patient to achieve an optimal hormone level that is usually found in a healthy 20- to 30-year old person.
He uses blood work, saliva and urine tests to determine the proper pharmaceuticals and nutrition to help patients achieve an optimal outcome.
