Meet Dr. Angela DeRosa

Dr. Angela DeRosa, DO, MBA, CPE, is a dynamic professional on a mission to change the face of Women’s Health and Wellness. As a respected, internationally recognized authority on women’s hormonal health, Dr. DeRosa understands the range of health issues women face leading up to and during menopause. She experienced early menopause at age 35, with symptoms beginning in her mid-twenties, while she was attending medical school. In her quest to find out what was happening to her, it became clear that understanding, research and treatment for this critical phase of women’s health was woefully inadequate.

Dr. DeRosa found her passion and embarked on a lifelong career specializing in women’s health with an emphasis on the importance of balanced hormones as a foundation for better health. While still in her residency, she developed the nineteenth women’s health program in the nation.

As Senior Medical Director, Dr. DeRosa worked for Procter & Gamble to help launch osteoporosis treatments and testosterone replacement for women. During her years with the pharmaceutical division, she saw firsthand how women’s ability to get proper medical care and treatment is thwarted due to politics, gender bias and poorly trained physicians. Her mission is to teach women about what’s happening to them physically, how they can obtain proper treatment, and to change the paradigm of medicine so women everywhere can live healthier and happier lives.

Dr. DeRosa has more than 20 years’ experience in the medical field, both on the pharmaceutical side and in clinical practice. She is the founder of DeRosa Medical, with offices in Scottsdale, Glendale, Chandler, and Sedona, Arizona. Patients come to see Dr. DeRosa from as far as Germany, Peru, Mexico, Hawaii, Alaska and many of the 48 contiguous states.

Dr. DeRosa is a member of the International Menopause Society, European Endocrine and Menopause Society, International Society for the Study Women’s Sexual Health and a researcher on women’s health issues. She is a frequent speaker for the osteopathic medical community on women’s health issues, and has spoken at the national American Osteopathic Association’s Continuing Medical Education meetings, the Arizona Osteopathic Medical Association’s bi-annual meetings, and in various other medical communities. Dr. DeRosa is Clinical Assistant Professor at Midwestern University, Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine. She was chosen by her peers to be the Secretary of the Arizona Osteopathic Medical Association.

As a women’s health expert, Dr. DeRosa is a regular guest on Channel 3’s Good Morning Arizona, and on The Morning Scramble with Pat McMahon as well as various radio programs. She also writes a bi-monthly column for the Arizona Republic’s community pages “Ask the Expert” feature.
