Jose R. Fernandez, M.D.
Hello, I’m Dr. Fernandez and I give you my warmest welcome to JMJ Family Practice. I graduated many years ago from medical school at the University of Florida, although I am a nole at heart from my undergraduate degree. I have a beautiful family of 9 children, and my faith is an integral part of who I am.
If some days are unavailable for appointments with me, it most likely means I’m attending a conference out of state. The passion I have for continuing my education is present and an essential element in being the doctor my patients need me to be.
St. Therese of Lisieux is a special saint to me, as one of my favorites quotes is this, “Remember that nothing is small in the eyes of God. Do all that you do with love.” I hope that you enjoy your experience at JMJ Family Practice or the Moscati Center and wish a beautiful, full and truthful life. God Bless you!!
Amy Myler, P.A.
HOLA! My name is Amy Myler and I am happy to be a new addition to the JMJ family serving as a physician assistant at the Moscati Center, and the token “gringa.” I received my undergraduate degree from Ave Maria University where I majored in biology and the art of coffee consumption. After which, I went on to Methodist University in Fayetteville, North Carolina for my Masters in Physician Assistant Studies.
During my rotations in PA school I was blessed to rotate here with Dr. Fernandez and fell in love with the practice and the world of functional medicine. I believe in the importance of treating the patient as whole-mind, body, and spirit. David Henry Thoreau states “A man may esteem himself happy when that which is his food is also his medicine.”
Practicing preventive medicine and searching for the root cause of illness is something I feel passionate about. Thanks to Dr. Fernandez and the rest of JMJ family for allowing me to call the Moscati Center my new home!
Linette DeLeon, A.R.N.P.
Hi! I’m Linette De Leon and I’m beyond blessed to be part of this beautiful family here at JMJ. As a mother, my boys are mi mundo! I graduated from South University but my learning has not stopped since I received my diploma.
I’m entirely committed to fitness and enriching our patients’ experiences, so look out for new services that JMJ will be providing! I never knew that the same doctor I worked with at Osceola Regional Medical Center would be the same caregiver I’m learning from and working with here at JMJ.
Dr. Fernandez has been a mentor to me in many ways and I’m excited to be contributing to the medical office that holds a special place in my heart.
Alexandra Rigaud, A.R.N.P.
Hello! My name is Alexandra Rigaud and I am extremely blessed to be part of such a reputable and amazing JMJ family. I completed my Master of Science in Nursing with a Specialization in Family Nurse Practitioner from South University. I have worked in the emergency department for 10 years. For the past few years, I have been working in a pediatric emergency room and I have fallen in love with pediatric care.
I learned about the JMJ practice as a patient. As a clinical student and patient, I witnessed Dr. Fernandez’s commitment and love for functional medicine. I learned that functional medicine focuses on treating the underlying cause of the disease through nutrition, exercise, spiritual and mental health. This is when my passion for functional medicine truly evolved.
I am honored and thankful to be given this opportunity to share my passion and personal medical experience with others. My desire is to help and connect with patients, as I sought to do so with Dr. Fernandez, implementing a functional approach.
Shiela Diaz, A.R.N.P.
Hello everyone! My name is Sheila Diaz. Though I was born in New Jersey, I have lived in Melbourne, Florida most of my
life. I completed my undergraduate nursing degree at
The University of Central Florida and gained valuable experience working as an RN both in the Hospital setting
at Holmes Regional, as well as a at a rehabilitation center
in this area. I eventually chose to further my education
and become a nurse practitioner. I graduated from The University of Florida with my Doctorate in
Nursing Practice in 2018.
I credit my undergraduate studies, as well as my
own health issues, for being the catalyst that began my
journey into the world of functional and integrative
medicine. I first encountered Dr. Fernandez back in 2017
as his patient and then later performed
clinical rotations at his practice in Kissimmee as a Nurse Practitioner student. I am very blessed now to be able
to work with Dr. Fernandez in a professional
capacity here in my own home town.
I truly believe that patients should be active participants in their own healthcare and am beyond excited to be a part
of the Moscati family. I can’t wait to meet you!
Carina Diaz, A.R.N.P
Hello! My name is Carina Diaz and I am extremely excited to join this awesome family at JMJ! I consider myself truly blessed to join this team as I have been a patient here for approximately 10 years and admire the faith and dedication that is provided by this medical team.
I became a nurse in 2011 and have since cared for critically ill patients in the hospital setting. Through the years,
I knew I wanted to expand my knowledge and continue my growth, so I decided to enroll back in school.
I graduated from South University and received my
master’s degree as Family Nurse Practitioner.
During my clinical rotation here, I was blessed to learn from
Dr. Fernandez and the nurse practitioners in caring for
the patients’ body, mind, and spirit. I am passionate about teaching our patients how to use preventive medicine
and finding more natural treatment options.
Natalia Charaudeau, A.R.N.P.
Hi everyone! My name is Natalia Charaudeau. I feel so happy
to have been given the opportunity to join the JMJ family.
I am a board-certified family nurse practitioner serving
patients and their families at the Kissimmee office.
I completed my nursing degree at the University of South Florida. My nursing career started in 2007 in an
adult/pediatric emergency department.
I fell in love with pediatric emergency care and that’s
where my focus was the past 5 years. I decided to
further my career and completed my
Master of Science in Nursing with a focus in
family practice from South University.
My knowledge for functional medicine started as a patient
at JMJ family practice and continued to grow during
my clinical rotations as a student. It is truly a blessing
to be able to understand how to heal from the inside out.
I’m so thankful to have the JMJ family welcome me with open
arms. I truly couldn’t have found a better place to grow as a nurse practitioner and I look forward to learning from my colleagues and patients.
