Brandon Conkling, D.O.
Brandon Conkling, DO has always been passionate about helping people, so when it came time to choose a career, being a doctor seemed like a natural decision. He pursued his medical degree at Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine in Tulsa, Oklahoma. When he graduated medical school in 1996, Dr. Conkling completed his internship and residency in internal medicine at the Tripler Army Medical Center in Honolulu, Hawaii.
He began practicing medicine as a general internist in the military at Fort Stuart in Georgia. During that time, he was deployed twice, doing tours in Bosnia and Iraq. Upon his return from Iraq, Dr. Conkling accepted a GI Fellowship at Texas A&M University College of Medicine at Scott & White Hospital in Temple, Texas.
When asked what he loves most about practicing medicine, Dr. Conkling says, “It is so rewarding to be a part of something that changes people’s lives. In this field, you see patients facing life-altering diseases and conditions. When you can make things better and improve quality of life, patients are so grateful and that is so rewarding.”
When he is not caring for his patients, Dr. Conkling enjoys spending time with his family and playing a few rounds of golf.
