How can you be assured that your medical care will be handled by caring, knowledgeable and experienced physicians. Do they regularly work closely with the best physician specialists in their field to insure that you'll receive the medical care you need? That's one of the benefits of the Desert Physician Association. We're an association of more than 300 Board Certified, multi-specialty, independent practice physicians in the East Valley of the Phoenix Metropolitan area. We serve Tempe, Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Ahwatukee, Apache Junction and the surrounding areas.
What does Board Certified mean to you?
Physicians who are Board Certified in their practice specialty are held to a higher standard. Higher standards mean better care. For more than 80 years the not-for-profit American Board of Medical Specialties (ABMS) has been committed to providing patients with the highest qualify health care by assisting their 24 Member Boards in developing and implementing uncompromising professional standards for doctors. You can trust Board Certified Doctors to take excellent care of you and your family.
