Dr. Linda Khoshaba

Hormone Doctor
Dr. Linda Khoshaba, NMD, FABNE is the founder of Natural Endocrinology Specialists (NES) and is a physician that is Board Certified in Naturopathic Endocrinology. She has been practicing in this field for almost a decade. She specializes in treating hormone imbalances in conditions such as Hashimoto’s and Graves thyroid disease, adrenal dysfunction and female and male hormones.
She believes that you have the potential to achieve optimal wellness and vitality. She focuses on identifying and treating the root causes of disease and considers the physical, mental, emotional, genetic and environmental aspects of health. Dr. Khoshaba works every day to empower people, patients, and communities to reclaim their wellbeing by partnering with them in their health care journey.

Dr. Laurena Patarkatsi

Hormone Doctor
Dr. Laurena Patarkatsi, NMD, is a first year Resident Physician at Natural Endocrinology Specialists (NES). Laurena was born and raised in New York with her parents, younger brother, and three dogs. Growing up as an athlete and in a home where food was treated as medicine, she wanted to expand her knowledge in the field of nutrition, exploring the biochemistry, but also the psychological aspects of food. She attended New York University, where she received her Bachelor of Science in Nutrition and Dietetics. She further continued her education at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine. While looking at food and nutrition as one key aspect to optimal health, she wanted to have the ability to assess all aspects contributing to her patients’ health and help them achieve optimal wellness. Her belief is that in order to heal, we need to look at the whole individual, listen to and understand their story and only then can we really begin to unravel the root cause of their symptoms. Empowering her patients to be their best health advocate and strive to live their healthiest and most authentic lives is why Dr. Laurena pursued medicine. Her hope is to guide, educate and assist her patients on their healing journey.

Tiffany Tippetts

Patient Care Coordinator
My name is Tiffany and I am the front and back office assistant at Natural Endocrinology Associates. I have worked in primary care and neurology before coming to work with Dr. Khoshaba. Finding NES and Dr. Khoshaba was like finding the perfect match for my beliefs and how I view health and medicine. I absolutely love patient care and getting to be a part of helping people get healthy and feeling better! Watching patients start feeling more like themselves and to be happy and healthy is why I love coming to work everyday.
I am a Phoenix native and could not imagine living anywhere else! I love being outdoors doing absolutely anything! I love hiking, paddle boarding, working out and exploring new places. I have one son, Bryson and he is entering middle school. We have so much fun going to the Phoenix Suns games and other sporting events. We enjoy the lakes and being out on the water.
I look forward to being a part of your healthcare journey!

Denise Johnson

Medical Assistant
Denise went to Apollo College to become a medical assistant. After receiving her diploma, her first job was as a dialysis technician. She then worked at Desert Samaritan Hospital, now known as Banner Desert as a phlebotomist for Sonoraa Labs. As time went by, she was approached by a pediatrician, and ended up working with 3 pediatricians over 11 years as a pediatric medical assistant. Over the years she has gained the reputation of a "vein whisperer" by many patients and doctors. Years later she became a medical assistant instructor at Remington College in Tempe Az. She has spent the last 15 years in the naturopath world and has loved every minute of it. Things she has learned along the way in her career have been that having great empathy and giving great care to her patients is truly a blessing for her and many patients have become good friends along the way. Denise is married to her wonderful husband Ray who she says, "he keeps me grounded and out of trouble". With her two children, Easton and Indya and three grandchildren, Kamren, Kaiser and Jackson she keeps very busy. Her story wouldn't be complete without mentioning her fur-babies, Malaya, Dutchess (the dogs) and Panther, Gray and Kibbles (the cats). In her free time, she enjoys playing pool ( don't let the sweet face fool you because she has earned the nickname " the shark") jewelry designing, painting, knitting, crocheting and socializing with family and friends.
Dr. Linda Khoshaba is the Leading Integrative Health and Hormone Doctor in Scottsdale, Arizona. She has extensive experience working in the field as a Hormone Specialist and Natural Endocrinologist.
