About Dr. Christine Brass-Jones, D.O.:
Dr. Christine Brass-Jones, D.O., was born and raised in Flushing, New York, attended college on Long Island at SUNY Stony Brook, and left New York for Iowa to attend medical school at the University of Osteopathic Medicine and Health Sciences in Des Moines. Dr. Brass-Jones chose osteopathic medicine because of its holistic view of caring for the patient. She finished a traditional internship and then a residency in OB/GYN at Mesa General Hospital in Mesa, Arizona. She is board certified and does deliveries and surgeries at Banner Gateway Hospital in Gilbert, Arizona.
Dr. Brass-Jones joined a traditional OB/GYN practice in 2000 after completing residency but was not satisfied with her decision. Over the next two years she concentrated on the development of an integrated medical center that would focus on women as the core of the family and helping them to create wellness within themselves. They would then be able to extend this wellness to their families, creating healthier family units.
