“I initially resisted getting involved in “alternative medicine.” Early on in my career I resisted my wife’s urging to learn and adopt it into my practice. When she developed significant and intermittently disabling pain related to childbirth, it became easy to adopt after seeing her recover with the aid of alternative therapies when conventional medicine failed to help her heal. I have reached a point in my career where I feel confident about harmonizing the best of conventional, alternative and emerging medical practices,” said Dr Anthony Aghenta, Founder and Medical Director of GhentMD.
Over the last decade, Dr. Aghenta practiced as an inpatient attending physician perfecting his “hands-on” skills to better serve and care compassionately for patients.

He also served as the Medical Director at Coronado Care Center, Phoenix.
Married with 2 children, Dr. Aghenta enjoys spending time with his family, traveling and participating in community activities as well as philanthropic global endeavors.
