Dr. Alice Prescott is a board-certified independent osteopathic physician with offices at Gordon Medical Associates. In addition to family practice residency at the Colorado Springs Osteopathic Foundation, she trained with the Institute for Functional Medicine, the Helms Institute, the American Academy of Prolotherapy, and the American Academy of Ozonotherapy, among others. She utilizes all osteopathic techniques including soft tissue release and biodynamic cranial osteopathy.
Before studying medicine she graduated in philosophy with departmental honors from the University of Washington, worked as a home heath aide, volunteered services to the AIDS community, and later trained in myofascial and craniosacral therapies. She started her career in a full-spectrum family practice in New Zealand, after doing missionary work for the Foundation for Global Harmony.
She first started seeing patients with advanced chronic illnesses including Lyme, mold toxicity, and hepatitis C at a homeless shelter in Austin. Alongside their medical issues, she supported her patients addressing chronic addictions, abuse survivorship, and inappropriate medical management.
She precepted with Dr. Neil Nathan at GMA in 2009, and started to use the approach of integrative care in management of chronic infections and environmental toxicities. Over the next three years, she returned to Gordon Medical Associates several times for preceptorship, and attended weekly meetings with the Gordon Medical Associate practitioners from 2012 until 2013. She worked for Austin Integrative Medicine and Northampton Wellness Associates before joining Gordon Medical Associates in 2013. In 2016 she became an independent practitioner, continuing to work out of offices at Gordon Medical.
She appreciates the complexity of patient presentation, incorporating principles of nutrition, detoxification, and GI function into all of her cases. She uses a range of osteopathic techniques, from biodynamic cranial and deep tissue release, to neural and trigger point injections, to help her patients with acute and chronic pain.
