I have a very thorough annual exam with Dr. DeRosa including EKG, Ultrasound, etc. The doctor is very good about communicating results in writing and with test results. I have these in my email inbox and they came in handy the other night. I was admitted to the hospital with chest pains and feared a heart issue (turned out to be GI-related). My EKG at the hospital was irregular and they… See more
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
When my patients are at the office, they are the focus of my attention with no interruption, delay or time constraints. The commitment to your health and wellness cannot be rushed. My smaller, concierge-style practice affords my staff and me the time to provide advanced screenings and tests to help identify risk factors and diagnosis and treat issues as early and effectively as possible. We also can focus on planning, prevention and comprehensive coordination of your care. My affiliation with MDVIP has helped me to achieve and improve upon these goals and principles with particular emphasis on cardiac care, bone health, respiratory care, diabetes, fitness, nutrition and more.
Our new state-of-the-art building and facility were designed with overall patient comfort and care in mind. My two long-time nurses, Amy and Lisa, have established personal relationships with each patient, allowing for the highest level of attention and follow-up care.
Having grown up in Westfield, New Jersey, I am an active member of this close-knit community and am proud of my family’s interest and involvement within the community as well. Located in the heart of Westfield, my personalized healthcare practice serves many surrounding areas of Union County and beyond. I am on staff at Overlook Hospital in Summit.
In 2014, I successfully passed my third American Board of Internal Medicine exam. The completion of this rigorous exam underscores my desire as an internist to stay highly trained and abreast of the most current diagnostic and therapeutic modalities in the field of internal medicine.
Although I maintain a small and intimate practice, I am always interested in meeting potential patients who share the same goals for their

In an age when health care is on everyone's mind, my family and I are blessed to have an extraordinary doctor and man take care of us.While preventative medicine is his ultimate goal, he is equally concerned with the chronically ill. Dr. Derosa is brilliant; he diagnoses maladies long before the ologists have weighed in. In addition. his compassion, concern, and attention are unmatched… See more

General Practitioners and Internal Medicine professionals have their place, but through my… See more
John and I wish to thank Dr. Derosa for his genuine concern regarding our health and wellness.
Each visit has been a great opportunity to share and hear what specific health suggestions are best for ME. I appreciate the time, wisdom and expertise, and relationship that has developed. I plan to be around for a LONG time and I will need you for each of those days. God bless you always.
A pleased health champion!!!!
We are so pleased that we decided to join Dr. DeRosas MDVIP practice. He has been extremely responsive whenever we have had a medical issue. We feel that we are in very good hands. He takes the time to actually listen to his patients. We never feel rushed. His nurse, Lisa, is terrific as well. In addition, we are always greeted cheerfully by his office manager, Amy.
Some time ago our then physician announced his retirement from active practice and suggested a potential replacement. This gave us an opportunity to truly review what we as a family were looking for in our physician. We came to the conclusion that logically our future physician would have to be not only highly regarded in the medical field but also young enough to survive us. In our… See more

It's impossible to… See more
