My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I have been a physician specializing in internal medicine and primary care for over 20 years. My approach to your care begins with creating and maintaining an environment of comfort, caring, trust and individualized service.

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

from EDWARD March 29, 2017 for Joseph DeRosa, MD

Dr. DeRosa is the best, he truly cares about us as patients. We have developed a wonderful relationship with Dr. Joe, even before he became an MDVIP member. As a doctor he did not change who he was upon joining MDVIP, but only allowed him to spend so much more time with us. He has really been deliberate in my care for Diabetes, and I have taken his recommendations very seriously. I just… See more

When I became ill last year my doctor and friend referred me to a few specialists. Regardless of who I was seeing he stayed in touch and followed up constantly by phone and e mail. I was asked to provide one word to describe him and that word is caring

from Debbie March 28, 2017 for Joseph DeRosa, MD

I actually look forward to my yearly evaluations with Dr. DeRosa. This is mainly because I have a great rapport to discuss every issue, which includes not only health issues but personal issues. It is comforting to know that he always has my best interests as a patient as well as a person in mind. I hope we have many more healthy years of well care together. However, I also feel like he… See more

from Lisa March 27, 2017 for Joseph DeRosa, MD

Dr. DeRosa has always been one of the most thorough, knowledgeable and caring doctors that I have ever had.

from Glenda March 27, 2017 for Joseph DeRosa, MD

I was sick and getting worse on the Sunday of New Year's weekend. I called the office. Within an hour, I was in his parking lot. Before I could exit my car, Dr. D. was outside to escort me into the building (it was very icy). I never expected such concern, and won't forget it.

from Frank March 22, 2017 for Joseph DeRosa, MD

Has all ways been there for me and my family.

from Annette March 20, 2017 for Joseph DeRosa, MD

He is always there for me. Has every quality a good doctor should have and MORE!

from Edward in NJ March 1, 2014 for Joseph DeRosa, MD

My wife and I have been with Dr. DeRosa since he opened his practice in NJ. He is an incredibly sensitive and intelligent doctor, we could not imagine not being patients of Dr. Joe. He is the best.

from John in NJ February 21, 2014 for Joseph DeRosa, MD

I was on vacation with my family at Universal studios. Apparently I was having a reaction to an allergy medicine that put me into Atrial Fibrillation at 2 AM in the morning. An ambulance brought me to the hospital and I was kept and treated and tested for 1-1/2 days. The entire time, Dr. DeRosa was in touch with me and the hospital staff to monitor my condition and keep my mind at ease.… See more

from Maureen in NJ February 21, 2014 for Joseph DeRosa, MD

The decision to change doctor's was easy. I called my doctor of 30 years and asked for an appointment since I was suffering from a sinus infection. The first available appointment was in 8 days. It was time to find a health care professional who would take an interest in my health.
Finding Dr DeRosa was easy. I polled people at work and in the community and his name kept popping… See more
