Dr. William Weiser has the following 2 specialties
- Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine
An osteopath is a physician who is trained in the philosophy of osteopathic medicine. These doctors have a D.O. degree which stands for Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, as opposed to M.D. for Medical Doctor.
Osteopathic medicine differs from conventional medicine, which is sometimes referred to as allopathic medicine, in that they incorporate a type of manual therapy called Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine (OMM) into their treatment in which they manipulate the spine in order to relieve pain when other methods have not been successful. This is reflective of the philosophical difference between the two types of physicians; osteopaths are trained to treat the body as a whole in the belief that the body is structured with the ability to heal itself while medical doctors treat specific illnesses or symptoms.
Overall, osteopaths and medical doctors in the US are both equally qualified to treat patients and they work in the same settings and provide the same treatments.

My daughter was seen by dr weiser during her nicu stay at kaiser. She had some neural tube defects and dr weiser was called in. He was extremely knowledgeable. We were so worried and he really really helped us!! More than any other md. He went as far as to locate a pediatric neurosurgeon. He truly cares about his patients.. Very honest and straight up. He performed a surgery on my daughters club foot and was done in 15 minutes! I was so worried and he made it seem it was so routine and somewhat put me at ease. I wish he was the one performing my daughters next 14 hr surgery. What a blessing to have such an amazing doctor! You are in great hands!
