Our Providers

Our Team Takes a Whole Person Approach to Health & Wellness

mind-body-healthFounded in 2010, DeRosa Medical is a rapidly growing practice with offices located in Scottsdale, Chandler, and Glendale. Treating our growing numbers of patients effectively requires a large number of supporting staff members, including providers, clinical assistants, and an administrative team. 

DeRosa Medical often includes medical students, or physicians in training as part of our active staff. Seeing patients is a vital part of their learning experience, and we appreciate patients who are open to empowering and teaching the next generation.

 

ANGELA DEROSA, DO, MBA, CPE

Dr. DeRosa’s ability to see and treat individual patients is very limited, so provider training and patient education have become her top priorities. She is reaching and educating more women through her book “How Your Doctor is Slowly Killing You: A Woman’s Health Survival Guide”, special events like Hormonal Happy Hour™, and through teaching and training the next generation of healthcare providers.

 

 


Mary MontesMARY MONTES, DNP

Why did you choose to work in healthcare? I wanted to live my life in service to others. One of my greatest joys is being able to positively affect patient’s lives through preventive medicine.

Do you have a personal health philosophy? Patients must be the captain of their own ship, but I’m truly happy and honored to be their first mate. Ultimately, the decision for taking charge of their health lies with them. I’ll be there to help chart the course and guide them along the way.

Who is your hero? Actually, I have two – my parents. They taught me the importance of hard work, perseverance, and above all else, kindness. They have never stopped supporting or inspiring me.

What’s your favorite movie? Right now, I’m immersed in the Wonderful World of Disney. Movies like Frozen, Cinderella and The Little Mermaid are in constant rotation at my house. After a long day at work, it’s wonderful to unwind. I love to cuddle with my three-year-old daughter  – she becomes so engaged and imaginative as she watches. Through her, I can experience the magic of seeing the world through fresh eyes all over again. It inspires me to try to give my patients the same gift.

GINA TOME, FNP

Why did you choose to work in healthcare? I honestly could not see myself doing anything else. Caring for other human beings is what I was meant to do in life. I am fortunate to have had the ability to fulfill my calling through my healthcare career, and advocate for my patients and their well-being. My goal is to help people feel their very best so they may live longer, more fulfilled lives.

Do you have a personal health philosophy? Exercise, nutrition and personal accountability are the foundation of good health. I believe that good physical health is attainable for everyone, and through education, motivation, and guidance patients will be more open to adopting a healthier lifestyle. It’s never too late to start a healthy diet or add physical activities to your daily routine. No matter where you are in your life or your current physical state, everyone can take steps, small or large, to improve their health and take personal accountability for their well-being. I love seeing patients transform their lives with healthy habits.

Who is your hero? My mother is my hero. She taught me at a very young age the importance of goals, motivation, and persistence. She always encouraged me and gave me the confidence to pursue my dreams. She told me that I could do anything, and without her I don’t know that I would be where I am today.

What are my favorite movies? Forrest Gump, Beetle Juice, Big Fish, Princess Bride, and Meet Joe Black.

Do I have any special hobbies? I enjoy working out, being outdoors, and photography is a hobby that I have spent the last 7 years of my life learning. So scoping out new photography sites with my daughter is how I enjoy spending time with my amazing daughter. I also support the March of Dimes
