Dr. Tara O’Desky grew up in a small town surrounded by forests, wildlife, herbs, perennial gardens, vegetable gardens and chickens. She learned at an early age the importance of medicinal herbs and living a sustainable life. She graduated Magma Cum Laude from Fairfield University in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science in marketing and studio art. While working in Boston, she continued to pursue her interests in nutrition, natural healing and herbal remedies.
After a few years in the business world, she knew it was time for a change. She began medical school at the University of Bridgeport College of Chiropractic, and was the recipient of the Charles G. Berwind Foundation scholarship, which supports students pursuing goals in medical and science fields. Dr. O’Desky graduated in 2003 and began practicing in Massachusetts, treating a diverse group of patients of all ages. She has focused her career on nutrition and whole food supplementation, medicinal herbs and holistic healing.
In 2019 she healed her own rosacea after 20 years of ineffective treatments and medications. She has since helped countless patients of all ages with rosacea, chronic gut problems, and food sensitivities, after developing her own holistic program for chronic skin conditions. Dr. O’Desky lives outside of Boston with her husband, two daughters, a Siberian cat, and a dwarf hamster. When she’s not working, she also enjoys gardening, painting and a newfound love of cooking.
Dr. O’Desky continues to practice in the Boston area and also sees patients via Telehealth.
