About Dr. Ronald Rosen
Dr. Ronald Rosen is a medical doctor who has lived and practiced in Bend, Oregon, for 25 years. He is board certified in internal medicine and in medical acupuncture. A Mexico native, he earned his medical degree at the National Autonomous University of Mexico.
After his residency in internal medicine at Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, Dr. Rosen went on to complete a demanding critical care fellowship at UPMC Presbyterian, a premier teaching hospital in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. While working as an emergency room physician in California, he discovered his passion for holistic medicine and started developing the integrative approach to medicine that he practices today.
Dr. Rosen began his studies in nutrition and detoxification with world-renowned chiropractor and iridologist Dr. Bernard Jensen. His involvement with Tai Chi Chuan and Chi Kung led to his interest in acupuncture, a practice he pursued in China, first with Dr. Grace Ying and then at the University of Nanjing. While in China, he also learned medical Chi Kung with Master Hwa. After returning to California, Dr. Rosen trained in osteopathic manipulation at the San Francisco Spine Institute, the Cranial Academy, and the Sutherland Cranial Foundation. His study of Biodynamic Cranial Osteopathy is ongoing with Dr. James Jealous, D.O. His extensive research and experience in the nutritional field led him to his practice of functional medicine, a holistic approach to treating complex and chronic illness. Dr. Rosen's expertise in energy medicine developed from his formal training with practitioners in Thailand, Brazil, and the United States. In the last 7 years he added Prolotherapy, PRP and PIT (Perineural Injection therapy) to his practice.
Prior to opening his solo practice in integrative medicine at Open Paths, Dr. Rosen was a founding member of Mountain Laurel Center for the Healing Arts, a group of medical doctors, acupuncturists, massage therapists, hypnotherapists, nutritionists, and other health practitioners in Bend. Dr. Rosen is a certified Laughter Yoga leader, and an avid Yoga and Tai Chi Chuan practitioner. He lives in Bend with his wife and their two daughters.
