James Sullivan, DO, Opens New Practice at Southern New Hampshire Health


Southern New Hampshire Health is pleased to announce that James Sullivan, DO, has opened a new practice, bringing his knowledge of neuromusculoskeletal medicine to Merrimack.

Musculoskeletal Medicine at Merrimack Medical Center opened earlier this month, with Dr. Sullivan serving as the board certified neuromusculoskeletal medicine specialist.

Dr. Sullivan graduated from Lincoln Memorial University-Debusk College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2014 and completed his residency at Southampton Hospital’s Integrated Family Medicine and Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine program.

For some time, Dr. Sullivan has been part of the Southern New Hampshire Health family, seeing patients as a primary care provider at Amherst Family Practice. In that role, his background in osteopathy informed his work, where he prided himself on his holistic approach to medicine.

“Having the opportunity to stand up a brand-new specialty was a life-goal of mine. My specialty is something I am truly passionate about, and I strive to be the best there is at what I do,” he says about his new endeavor.

Dr. Sullivan is accepting new patients. To become a patient of Musculoskeletal Medicine at Merrimack Medical Center patients must be referred. 

“My patients should know that I take my specialty seriously. This is not a boutique, and we don’t deal in spa treatments. My goal is not to palliate. It is to stabilize, improve, and galvanize against reinjury. I heal no one: I create the ideal environment for my patients to heal themselves, and they do; lots and lots of them do,” Dr. Sullivan explains.

Outside of the hospital Dr. Sullivan enjoys some unique hobbies like bee keeping and competitive pumpkin carving. He also enjoys drawing, painting, and spending time outdoors.
