New Gilbert medical practice focuses on aging
A new medical practice opened in Gilbert after a big grand opening last week, and Mayor Jenn Daniels even joined the festivities.
GhentMD, which boasts of “integrating innovative health and wellness services” opened at 1434 W. Elliot Road.
Founder and medical director Dr. Anthony Aghenta said he uses “concepts from the advancing fields of age management and regenerative medicine” to treat patients suffering from aging-related skin disorders, obesity, chronic pain, hormonal imbalance, sexual dysfunction, stress and loss of vitality.
“I initially resisted getting involved in ‘alternative medicine,’” he said, despite his wife’s prodding to do just that.
”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,” Aghenta said.
“I have reached a point in my career where I feel confident about harmonizing the best of conventional, alternative and emerging medical technology.”
Aghenta said his services include aesthetics, regenerative pain relief, sexual rejuvenation, weight management, nutrient IV therapy, concierge medicine, and primary care.
Aghenta graduated from the Unity Health System, Rochester, New York, Internal Medicine Residency Program.
He is board-certified in internal medicine and has undergone advanced training and certification in age management medicine.
He is affiliated with the American College of Physicians, Arizona Medical Association, Age Management Medicine Group, American Academy of Regenerative Medicine and the International Association of Physicians in Aesthetic Medicine.
Also on his staff is RiAnn Simmons, a board-certified family nurse practitioner with 13 years’ experience as a registered nurse where she primarily worked in the acute settings of the emergency department, ICU and pre/post-anesthesia care unit and another three years in urgent care. She offers skincare and beauty treatments.
Another team member is Dr. Vance Inouye, an Arizona-licensed, board-certified naturopathic physician who is trained in regenerative joint injections, prolotherapy, sports medicine, stem cell therapy, aesthetics, intravenous therapy including nutritional IVs aesthetics, deep tissue massage and anti-aging.
Rounding out Aghenta’s team is Vanessa Orquiz, a graduate of Southwest Institute of Natural Aesthetics.
