Assistant Professor, Clinical Sciences
Dr. Angie Skokos has been a clinician at the Whole Health Center in Lombard since 2009. She earned her doctor of chiropractic from National University in 2002 and specializes in acupuncture and functional medicine.
As a chiropractic physician, she is trained and utilizes the diversified technique. Using this training, she treats patients with both musculoskeletal and non-musculoskeletal conditions. She is also trained as a Department of Transportation medical examiner for motorized vehicle drivers, specifically truck drivers.
She continues to seek educational opportunities in acupuncture, functional medicine and musculoskeletal topics. Most recently, she earned her certification in facial rejuvenation for cosmetic acupuncture, Kinesio taping, McKenzie method for the low back and manipulation under anesthesia. She also holds her Master of Science in advanced clinical practice from National University and served a fellowship in the International Academy of Medical Acupuncture in 2004.
She enjoys working with interns and teaching them the qualities of being a good health care professional. Dr. Skokos's ability to speak and communicate with the Greek and Hispanic populations has allowed these subpopulations to receive care from interns under her guidance. Alongside interns, she encounters a wide array of clinical conditions-both musculoskeletal and internal conditions and sees patients of all ages.
She believes physicians should work together to gain optimal results. For this reason, she works closely with medical doctors, naturopathic physicians as well as acupuncture and oriental medicine when appropriate for patients. It is not uncommon for her shift to interact and co-manage with the other clinical departments at National University for the purpose of helping the patient return to overall wellbeing.
