We are thrilled to introduce her to the Verde Valley community; the addition of her specialty skills will allow for more Verde Valley residents to stay close to home,” Dr. Bernardi added.

Hosner, who has over 30 years of health care experience, is a primary health care provider to women of all ages throughout their lives.

She will also provide primary care such as conducting annual exams, writing prescriptions and offering basic nutrition counseling. She is passionate about providing health care to women and she knows there is a great need for a women’s health provider in the Verde Valley area.
