Rijo Philip, DO

Dr. Rijo Philip is Board Certified in Family Medicine and Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment. He grew up in North Texas and completed medical school at the Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine in Fort Worth.

Dr. Philip completed his undergraduate degree at Texas A&M University and a Master’s degree in Theology after spending several years in seminary formation. He is married to Megan, and they have two children, Mariyam and Joseph.

The first tenets of osteopathic medicine established by A.T. Still are: 1) a patient is a unit of mind, body, and spirit, and 2) the body has its own self-healing and self-regulating mechanisms. Dr. Philip holds to these principles and tries to help his patients achieve optimal health, especially through the healing touch of Osteopathic Manipulation.





Reviews from his Patients

  • I’m writing this review on behalf of my mom who is a patient here. She raves about Dr. Philip. She had gone in for frozen shoulder and back pain, and is currently undergoing OMT (osteopathic manipulative therapy). After a few treatments, she experienced significant improvements, and she attributes them to “Dr. Philips magic hands”. Not only is he kind and intelligent, but it is very evident that he genuinely cares about his patients. Bottom line: I would highly recommend Dr. R Philip. Maryam
