Dr. Steph Davis

Hi, I am Stephanie Davis. I was born and raised in Kansas City, MO. I have been married to my
high school sweetheart for the last 20 years. I have two children, my daughter Kaylie, 15 and my
son, Carson, 11. My husband and I graduated from Liberty High School, after which I attended
William Jewell College and obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Biology in 1997. I then attended
Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences for medical school. After graduation in 2001
I completed my residency training in Emergency Medicine at Henry Ford, Bicounty in Detroit
Michigan. Since finishing residency 12 years ago, I have worked as a full time emergency
medicine physician in the Greater Kansas City area.

I currently serve as a member of the Board of Directors for the American College of
Osteopathic Emergency Physicians, which assists with the not only the education of emergency
physicians but also participates in governmental advocacy for the profession. I have severed as
Vice Chief of Staff at my current employer. I am also medical director for several different
ambulance services, over seeing their protocols and patient treatment. Over the past 4 years, I
have developed and become the Stroke Director at my facility, creating and setting in place a
program to more effectively and acutely care for stroke patients not only in the emergency
department but in the inpatient setting, and rehab unit.

When I am not working I am very much a mother and wife. My family enjoys our time
spent on our 200+ acre farm. We care for our several head of cattle that we raise for grass fed
beef. We enjoy hunting, fishing, hiking and shooting. My husband and I look forward to open
deer season each fall. However, we also each Fall travel to Allagash Maine where we “drop of
the grid” for one week into the Northern Maine Woods with no cellphone or internet service and
go black bear hunting. I am very involved in my childrens lives being home for dinner and
attending their activities is always a major priority for me. However, my kids know that “mommy
needs her gym time”. In caring for patients, and sick patients I saw not only the need for de-
stressing but also the need for preventitive medicine. I avidly work out at the gym, doing cardio
and weights ……..

I have known since I was a sophomore in high school that I wanted to be a physician.
Every part of me wanted to be able to care for patients, from physically to emotionally to
spiritually, I became an osteopathic physician for that exact reason. I saw in these amazing
physicians the desire to care for the ENTIRE patient. In wanting to always do what is best for
the patient, I have always kept myself educated in Western Medicine practices to keep myself
as up to date as possible.
