Tiffany L. Orndorff, DO
- Tiffany L. Orndorff, DO, joined our practice in 2002. She is a graduate of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-School of Osteopathic Medicine. Dr. Orndorff completed her residency and internship in Family Practice at the affiliate hospital, Our Lady of Lourdes in Camden, NJ. For the past 2 years, she has practiced in Cape May, NJ and is now moving to Powhatan to re-join her family. Dr. Orndorff is trained as an osteopathic physician, which is a 110 year old School of Medicine first founded in the 1880’s by Andrew Taylor Still. Still was a traditionally trained physician who set out to improve medical care of the time by placing emphasis on preserving health rather than merely treating disease. This reform movement lead to the development of techniques of manual medicine known as OMT (Osteopathic Manipulative Techniques). Today all barriers between M.D.’s and D.O.’s are gone and students of both schools take the same licensing exams and serve side by side in all fields of medicine.
