Lisa Pacheco, DO

Board-Certified Physician

As the director of the Missoula Wellness and Medispa located in the Alpine Oral and Facial Surgery building, Dr. Pacheco offers her patients a wide selection of non-surgical skincare and cosmetic treatments, including medical peels, laser treatments, injectable treatments, ultrasound skin tightening therapy, and microdermabrasion. In addition, she offers her patients individualized plans to achieve optimal wellness, using a variety of natural medicine and osteopathic manual medicine (OMM) treatments to restore health and vitality.

With the central understanding that feeling good, being healthy, and looking your best are inextricably linked, Dr. Pacheco uses state-of-the-art diagnostic evaluation and 20 years of clinical experience to guide her patients to the solutions that are right for them.

From anti-aging procedures and products to bio-identical hormone rebalancing and medicinal diets, Dr. Pacheco offers a comprehensive wellness approach to her practice. As a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine, she believes that the human being is one dynamic unit of function – and that a non-invasive, whole-body approach should be the first step when treating patients.

Before moving to Missoula in 2009, Dr. Pacheco practiced primary care, Osteopathic Manual Medicine and Integrative Medicine in Portland, Maine. She served as part of the clinical faculty at the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine, in the department of Osteopathic Manual Medicine, for sixteen years. Also during that period, she taught community medicine to medical students who rotated through her office as part of Maine’s Area Health and Education initiative. Dr. Pacheco was founder and director of the Portland Osteopathic Clinic for Children, a donations-only non-profit clinic for Maine children in need.

 

After moving to Missoula in 2009, Dr. Pacheco expanded her practice and training to Aesthetic Medicine. In addition to being Director of the Wellness Medical Spa, she continues to practice integrative medicine, physical medicine, and osteopathic manual medicine independently.

 

When she’s not in the office, Dr. Pacheco enjoys cooking, hiking, hot springs, the ocean, and spending time with her family.
