Meet the Doctor
Dr. April Vukelic graduated Cum Laude from Grove City College in Molecular Biology. She completed medical school at Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine and received her Doctorate of Osteopathy in 2003. She completed residency training in Family Medicine at Mercy Hospital in Pittsburgh, PA and then did an additional geriatric training as a Chief Resident. She is board-certified in Family Medicine. Dr. Vukelic has worked as a hospitalist at Armstrong Memorial Hospital and as a house physician at Kindred Hospital. She has worked extensively in the field of Addiction Medicine and is board certified by the American Board of Addiction Medicine. She received her board certification from the American Board of Preventative Medicine (Addiction Medicine) in February of 2020.
Dr. Vukelic received certification from Dr. Shoemaker in the treatment of CIRS. She believes this is a key component to human health which is being missed by an outdated paradigm. Dr. Vukelic has completed Dr. Bredesen's Course for Reversal of Cognitive Decline. She has also been Certified by Dr. Terry Wahls in The Wahls Protocol.
Dr. Vukelic has also completed a number of advanced courses in Osteopathic training. This training includes work in Biodyamnic Osteopathy, sequencing in key lesions, the Cranial Course from the Cranial Academy, and individualized mentor training.
When I first met Dr. Vukelic it was right after I had to withdraw from school because I was on the verge of failing. My brain wasn’t working to the level I needed it to be to pass my classes and I had no idea why. I had always been a Dean’s List student and then all of a sudden, I was failing. So, what was going on? Between always being tired, having night sweats, cognition issues, constant headaches and mood swings, to name a few, I was miserable. After ordering bloodwork and seeing the results it was determined that I had CIRS. I then started to follow the CIRS treatment protocol, while Dr. Vukelic educated me on this new syndrome that I had no prior knowledge of. After a few months I began to feel much better and more like myself! Now I am in the process of reapplying to school to further my education and future career. I would have never got to this point without the help of Dr. Vukelic. She truly invests her time into her patients and wants the best for each and every one of them!

I was very pleased with the care I received from Dr. Vukelic. She is one of the most intelligent, caring and competent professionals that I have ever met. She truly listened to me and what my body needed. She treated me like a person, not just another patient and worked hard to relieve my pain. Her individualized approach is safe, gentle but highly effective. It is a wonderful alternative to chiropractic services!
The frequency and intensity of my migraines improved significantly. They were reduced from daily to 1-2 times in a 10 day period. The pain in my arm, elbow and shoulder almost disappeared. And, my back pain no longer prevented me from sleeping.
I tried several medications for my migraines and ended up in the emergency room after having a severe reaction to both a beta blocker and Topamax (prescribed from a neurology office). Other OTC and prescription medications only work slightly to relieve the pain. So, I was left with Botox as my only real option until I tried osteopathy. I declined Botox due to the potentially horrible side-effects like paralysis on one side of your face. Osteopathy was a blessing. I didn't have to worry about having an allergic reaction and I saw improvement quicker than with traditional physical therapy and chiropractic services.
