Family & Sports Medicine
Robert R. Nooney, DO, PLLC was born and raised in Missoula, Montana. He graduated from the University of Montana with a BS in Pre-Physical Therapy Sciences and then obtained his Osteopathic Medical Degree at The Western University of Health Sciences in Pomona, California. After completing his internship and two-year residency in Dayton Ohio, he attended The Sports Medicine Clinic in Seattle and completed his fellowship in Primary Care Sports Medicine.
As an Osteopathic Physician, he was trained in holistic principles that include an inherent mind-body-spiritual interconnectivity. Tenets of this philosophy include:
- The body is capable of self-regulation, self-healing and health maintenance. He believes the role of the physician is to prevent states of dis-ease, support recovery and then treat the underlying cause in order to achieve optimal health.
- Structure and function are reciprocally interrelated.
- Rational treatment is based upon an understanding of the basic principles of body unity, self-regulation and the interrelationship of structure and function.
Dr. Nooney feels that the physician’s role is “to use medical technology to get the body out of trouble and then it’s the patient’s responsibility to keep it healthy.”
For several years after moving to Olympia in 1993, he was Team Physician for Saint Martin’s College, The Evergreen State University and South Puget Sound Community College. He has three fantastic children who are growing up fast!
His current practice includes Family and Sports Medicine and he is the Supervising Physician for Ideal Wellness NW. He thoroughly enjoys helping patients and clients optimize their health through this scientific and medical weight-loss system: “For the first time in over 20 years of medical practice, I can predictably reduce or eliminate medications as patients and clients go through this weight loss program!”
