Byron Perkins, DO Medical Director

Dr. Perkins is a graduate of the University of Health Sciences, College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kansas City, MO, 1984. He interned at Oklahoma Osteopathic Hospital in Tulsa, and completed a residency in Osteopathic Family Practice at Doctor’s Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. Board certified in Osteopathic Family Medicine, his current practice focuses on primary care, mental health, wellness, musculoskeletal injuries and Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment.

Dr. Perkins grew up in Japan, where his parents were missionaries. He moved to Alaska in 1974 after graduating from High School in Tokyo. His life long desire has been to facilitate and participate in Medical Missions. He began his medical practice at the Norton Sound Health Corporation in Nome, and practiced at the Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage before co-founding Cornerstone Clinic Medical and Counseling Center. Alaska Medical Missions has grown out of that endeavor.

His current affiliations include the Alaska Osteopathic Medical Association, the Alaska State Medical Association, the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians, the American Fascial Distortion Model Association, and the American Osteopathic Association. He serves on the Board of Directors of Anchorage Project Access, the Northwest Osteopathic Medical Foundation in Portland, OR, and Northwest University in Kirkland, WA. He maintains teaching appointments with several Osteopathic Colleges of Medicine, and precepts medical students in Osteopathic Principles and Practice at Cornerstone Clinic. He also serves as an Elder at Muldoon Community Assembly of God Church.

Dr Perkins is passionate about treating the whole person, mind, body and spirit. He is thankful for the opportunity to practice medicine, and the gift he has received in the osteopathic profession. In his words, “helping others is one of life’s greatest blessings, and most meaningful rewards.”
