Donna DeSantis, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

As a family physician my goal has always been to empower my patients to get healthy and stay healthy. I know this encompasses both the physical and emotional aspects of health. As an MDVIP-affiliated physician I will have the ability to partner with my patients to achieve their wellness goals at a highly personalized level.

With nearly 25 years of experience practicing family medicine in the Chandler, Arizona area, I am aware that getting to know my patients well and being able to spend time with them to address their healthcare needs will enable them to lead healthier lives. As a female physician I have a particular interest in women’s health, but I also have strong interests in preventative medicine, behavioral health, diabetes and cardiovascular disease. For the past 10 years I have been the principal investigator for the research studies done within our practice. This has allowed me to be on the frontline of cutting edge treatment for many health conditions such as diabetes, COPD and hypertension. As your personal physician I will be able to provide the level of care that will enable you to achieve and maintain better health.
