Dr. Romero’s Biography

Whether you are a competitive athlete or struggling with osteoarthritis, I will support you in accomplishing your ideal state of health and optimal performance.”

– Dr. Kelly Romero

Kelly Romero, NMD, EP-C, CHES, CKTP

I was born in Manhattan Beach, CA and moved to Scottsdale, AZ with my family in 1996. I’m proud to say that I attended high school, undergrad, and graduate school all in Arizona. Go Sun Devils! I enjoy running, yoga, and due to my competitive spirit, playing sports, such as volleyball. I live in Mesa, AZ with my husband Nick, our daughter Delphine, our dogs Bucky and Kona, and our cat Tito. We love to spend our time traveling, camping, and having weekly dinners with our families. As an athlete, I have my own personal experience with chronic pain. I understand the importance of finding effective treatments as well as natural pain solutions. My education and experience has led me to incorporate the Functional Medicine philosophy along with Regenerative Medicine treatments, such as Prolotherapy, Platelet-Rich Plasma Therapy (PRP), Amniotic Therapy and Exosomes to provide my patients with pain relief, faster injury recovery, and enhanced daily function. Whether you are a competitive athlete or struggling with osteoarthritis, I will support you in accomplishing your ideal state of health and optimal performance.

For a very long time, I have been passionate about health and wellness. I’ve always been interested in helping people adopt healthier lifestyles, as I have worked as a personal trainer and health coach in the past. Ultimately, my love for educating people on wellness and disease prevention made my choice to become a Naturopathic Medical Doctor an easy decision. I felt that naturopathic medicine encompassed the same philosophy I have with regard to achieving optimal health and disease management. As a physician, my goal is to provide individualized healthcare using a system of natural medicine that not only improves the longevity of life for my patients, but the quality of life as well.
