Dr. Frances I Romero
Board Certified Family Physician
Born and raised in Puerto Rico, Frances Romero MD is a Board Certified Family Physician with expertise in General Prevention, Weight Loss, Women's Health, and Chronic Conditions. She has practiced for over ten years. Her passion lies in providing exceptional care to patients in a nurturing and supportive environment.
Dr. Romero was born to be a doctor even though her parents are Civil Engineers. Dr. Romero inherited the doctor gene from her grandma Olga who graduated from college at age 54 and became a Health Teacher.
Dr. Romero graduated from Universidad Central del Caribe Medical School in 2008; she completed her Family Medicine Residency at Lehigh Valley Health Network in 2011, where she served as Co-Chief during her training. Dr. Romero speaks English, Spanish, and Spanglish fluently.
In 2018 she founded Shine Direct Primary Care. Her goal is to serve patients independently from their health insurance status. She wants her clinic to be a place where people feel comfortable coming as often as necessary without worrying about how much it would cost them or if their visit qualified for a copay or not!
In 2020 she joined forces with Island Doctors to provide exceptional primary care to Humana Medicare Advantage HMO, PPO, and Medicare patients.
In her free time, Dr. Romero volunteers as a mentor for young women who want to succeed in life. She loves spending time with her family and friends, traveling, exercising, cooking, and reading books about entrepreneurship, health, and wellness. She is the mother of two funny humans and two crazy cats who are the light of her life!
