Sherri J. Tenpenny, D.O.
Dr. Sherri J. Tenpenny, is the founder of Tenpenny Integrative Medical Center, a clinic first established in Strongsville, Ohio in 1996 under the name of OsteoMed II. Her goal is to provide the best of integrative medicine throughout Cleveland and Northeast Ohio.
Dr. Tenpenny is a graduate of the University of Toledo in Toledo, Ohio and received her training as an osteopathic medical doctor at Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine in Kirksville, Missouri. Dr. Tenpenny is Board Certified in Emergency Medicine and Osteopathic Manipulative Medicine. She has undertaken many advanced courses in alternative medicine, including acupuncture and complex homeopathy.
Prior to her career in integrative medicine, Dr. Tenpenny served as Director of the Emergency Department at Blanchard Valley Regional Hospital Center in Findlay, Ohio, from 1987 to 1998. In 1994, she and a partner opened OsteoMed, a medical practice in Findlay limited to the specialty of osteopathic manipulative medicine. In 1996, Dr. Tenpenny moved to Strongsville, Ohio, expanding her practice to be a truly integrative clinic. The office has since moved to Middleburg Heights, Ohio, where the clinic has been serving patients since 2004.
Dr. Tenpenny is board certified in three medical specialties. She was boarded in Emergency Medicine from 1995 to 2006. She chose to not re-certify in Emergency Medicine – a time consuming and expensive undertaking – because she did not plan to ever again work within an Emergency Medicine facility. She has been board certified in Osteopathic Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine (AOBNMM) since 1995 and became board certified in Integrative and Holistic Medicine in 2012 (ABIHM).
Dr. Tenpenny`s special interest is chronic pain and a unique approach to chronic diseases. She has taken advanced studies in women`s health, breast thermography, bio-identical hormone use, and thyroid-adrenal balancing.
