About Dr. Saskia Lytle-Vieira

“When you are born, your work is placed in your heart”  Kahlil Gibran

From a very young age, I knew I was meant to be a doctor. Little did I know I would find osteopathy, which would be such an enormous blessing in my life and a way of practicing medicine that makes my heart sing. Osteopathy is something I am so proud to share.

It is my hope that you can find a physician who cares about you and can provide an outstanding level of support, expertise, and love.

“The human body is like a concert hall where superb and stunning symphonies are played- every note in its right time, exemplifying perfection between the interdependent systems of the body. Every body has a story to tell– the beautiful, rich, woven tapestry of our lives. I am awed by the therapeutic power and beauty of osteopathy, and feel honored that patients allow me to work with their bodies in this special way. ”  Saskia Lytle-Vieira, D.O.
