Welcome Dr. Mark Yarshen to Caldwell, TX
Dr. Mark Yarshen is a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine and new to the Caldwell Clinic. Just like Medical Doctors, commonly known as MDs, DOs practice in all areas of medicine.
Dr. Mark Yarshen has has felt from a young age that the mind and body were interconnected. As a result, he pursued a degree from Midwestern University in Downers Grove, IL. He subsequently graduated as part of the class of 2003. “My education focused on the mind, body, and spirit, considering a whole person and not just their disease,” Yarshen added. Following his graduation he completed his residency in 2006 at Hinsdale Family Medicine Residency Program, in Hinsdale, IL. Dr. Yarshen’s leadership capabilities were recognized early on. For this reason he was asked to serve as Chief Resident overseeing 29 resident physicians.
Because of his dedication to compassionate care in a wholistic setting, the majority of Dr. Yarshen’s work has been for non-profit organizations. This dedication coupled with a desire for warmer weather brought him to Texas. Here he has joined the Caldwell Healthpoint Clinic team and the Burleson County St. Joseph Hospital system. Dr. Yarshen began his work with us on January 1, 2021.

What’s the difference between an MD and DO?
Most patients can’t tell whether their doctor is an MD or DO. From an education standpoint, there’s really not a lot of difference. The reason for the difference in designation comes down to philosophy. DOs focus on holistic treatments, emphasizing a “whole-person” approach to care. They put great emphasis on preventive care.
