Dr. Marshall is a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (DO) specializing in Obstetrics and Gynecology. She earned her degree from the Ohio University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Athens, OH and completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecological Surgery at St. Joseph’s Mercy Hospital – Oakland in Pontiac, MI, which is affiliated with Michigan State University – College of Osteopathic Medicine. She is a Fellow of the American College of Osteopathic Obstetrics and Gynecology (FACOOG).
Dr. Marshall returned home in 2009, leaving a private practice of more than 8 years in Mansfield, Ohio. Dr. Marshall states, “I grew up in Maryland and have always considered this my home. I enjoyed the practice and time in the Midwest but missed the sense of community and family that I had here in Maryland."
Since returning to the area, she has served as an OB/GYN Hospitalist at the Prince George’s Health Center and as an OB/GYN at the Women’s Health Center in Waldorf. Dr. Marshall states, "I actually missed the office setting and the continuity of care that it provides. I'm looking forward to joining the Calvert Women's Center and settling into the medical community, so I can get back to what I enjoy, caring for my patients. It is my desire to provide excellent personalized care so that every one of my patients feels special and empowered as it relates to their healthcare.
Dr. Marshall provides the full range of gynecological and obstetric care for women of all ages and has special interests in menopausal and postmenopausal issues, abnormal cervical pathology, normal and moderate risk obstetrics and intimate health issues.
A Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine goes through the same level of medical training as an allopathic physician (MD). Both types of doctor are fully licensed to perform the full spectrum and practice of medicine. DOs focus on treating the patient as a ‘whole person’, looking beyond individual symptoms. They view the body as an integrated system and focus on preventive care. Osteopathic physicians obtain additional training in the musculoskeletal system and use osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT), which is a core set of noninvasive techniques used both to diagnosis and treat ailments in order to achieve or complement your naturally healed state.
