    Hi everybody!

    I guess a lot of you are in crunch mode thumbing through phonebooks looking for any name with a DO next to it.

    No more yellow fingers!

    If you are looking for a DO to shadow, I can not stress enough going through the AOA (American Osteopathic Association).
    The website address is: <a href="http://www.aoa-net.org." target="_blank">www.aoa-net.org.</a>
    I worked it and I have two DOs writing me letters to DO schools.

    :) Note: One DO is great, but if they have a bad week the week you need a letter, you may not be priority #1,2,or 3. If you can find two DOs you can shadow and get letters from, the better off you will be. I got this advice from a DO! :)

    Believe me, if you ask; they will 80-90% of the time say Yes. They know you need their help, they had to go through the same thing at one point!

    BTW: The state associations with an asterik (*) indicates a physician directory. NOT ALL the state orgs will have this directory, but you can be sure they will still provide you with the necessary information.
