Thomas Auxter, D.O., has been a physician since 1986 and has focused on family medicine since 1998. He stresses the importance of health maintenance. “A main tenet of osteopathy is that structure determines function," he says. “The more ‘normal’ the body’s structure (weight, muscle tone, etc.), the more likely it is to achieve normal function. It is also more likely to heal faster or respond to treatment better.” Patient comments about him include:
"I saw Dr. Auxter for the first time today. He addressed my issues and was funny and direct. I will definitely continue to see him as my primary care physician."
"Dr. Auxter and his staff are incredible. From the moment I walked in, the staff made me feel at home. Dr. Auxter tells me as it is and treats me like a human and not a number. My entire experience with this office has been fantastic."
Dr. Auxter welcomes the opportunity to help you with any family medicine concerns and he is particularly skilled in the areas of minor surgical procedures in the office setting. “My father was a surgeon and I started working with him at age 16. I have extensive surgical experience in lesion removal and wound repairs.”
Prior to joining Utica Park Clinic (UPC), Dr. Auxter cared for patients at St. John Health System for 20 years. He has also worked in many rural emergency rooms and hospitals in Kansas and Oklahoma.
Dr. Auxter studied biology, chemistry and history at Northeast Missouri State University and completed his undergraduate degree there in 1981. He earned his medical degree from Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kirksville, MO in 1986. He completed his internship at Carson City Hospital in Carson City, MI in 1987. He is a member of the American Osteopathic Association and the Oklahoma Osteopathic Association.
Dr. Auxter’s personal interests include flying, golfing, hunting, computers/electronics, scuba diving, NASA and traveling. He has enjoyed volunteering for the Civil Air Patrol as a search and rescue pilot and the US Coast Guard Auxiliary as a maritime patrol pilot. He has also volunteered in fundraising for the American Heart Association and United Way and serves as president of the Oklahoma Airman Flying Club.
