After attending the University of Arizona, College of Medicine, she completed a Family Practice residency at Good Samaritan Hospital in Phoenix, Arizona. Dr. Garland is board certified in Family Practice. She began working at ASU in 1990 and has been a team physician in Intercollegiate Athletics since 1993. In addition to working at Intercollegiate Athletics and the Campus Health Center, she also works at the Student Health center at the Polytechnic (East) campus.
Dr. Garland chose to work at ASU because she saw it as an opportunity to provide sports medicine for both athletes and a population of college students that are very active. She has thoroughly enjoyed being a Team Physician for ASU athletes, from Division I and Club athletes, to “Weekend Warriors.” Being alumni of ASU, Deborah Garland has a special place in her heart for the university. Working at ASU and serving the students is a way she enjoys paying back ASU for all that it did for her as a student.
Jean Arlotti, Family Nurse Practitioner, joined the staff on the Downtown Phoenix Campus of ASU Health Services in 2012. She became licensed as an RN after she earned her BSN degree at Penn State University, in her native state of Pennsylvania. After gaining clinical experience in medical-surgical nursing, adult ICU, and neonatal ICU, she went overseas to serve as a Peace Corps Volunteer for two years in Antigua, West Indies. There, she worked alongside maternity and neonatal nurses, helped with training, and taught classes to nursing students and at-risk teens in the community. Upon return to the US, she earned her MSN degree from Florida State University and became certified as a Family Nurse Practitioner in 1995.
As a nurse practitioner, Jean has worked in clinics for the uninsured and underserved, HMO settings, retail health clinics, and psychiatric facilities. In the academic setting, she has taught in nursing programs at Florida A&M University and the University of Maryland. Jean is excited to be in the academic environment again and enjoys being part of a thriving NP clinic that meets the critical health care needs of the students, faculty, staff, and surrounding community.
As a “Navy Brat” Dr. Jo Knatz lived in nine different locales before age 9, then settled in Groton, Connecticut, until she left for University of Kansas where she received a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. She then came to Phoenix where she worked both in medical ICU and postpartum recovery. While working as a nurse, she wanted to do more, and have more control over patient care. She then decided to attend the University of Kansas, School of Medicine, and completed her residency in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Missouri- Kansas City/Truman Medical Center. She has been a board-certified obstetrician/gynecologist since 1989.
Dr. Knatz moved to Mesa, AZ in 1987 where she practiced with a group for ten years and then formed her own practice where she was at for twelve years prior to coming to ASU Health Services. There were a multitude of reasons for leaving private practice, but the primary one was the opportunity to work with a group of physicians dedicated to providing the best quality health care, evidence based, and work with the future leaders of our country. She has been awed by the talented students here at ASU, their thirst for knowledge, amazing energy and drive to succeed. The community that is ASU, which is that of caring, sharing and support, is just one of the many reasons she enjoys working at ASU.
Dr. Roger McCoy has been a team physician at ASU since 1994 and recently took over as Head Team Physician. He's been the Head Primary Care Sports Medicine team physician for the Arizona Diamondbacks since 1996 when the team had only minor league affiliates. He also has become a team physician for the Arizona Rattlers. He received his sports medicine fellowship training at Michigan State University and passed his Certificate of Added Qualifications in Sports Medicine from the American Board of Family Practice and has passed and maintained his Family Practice Board certification. He has a busy private practice in the valley entailing both sports medicine and primary care. In addition, Dr. McCoy is flattered to be voted as one of the “Top Docs” by Phoenix Magazine in 2006, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013. He is also certified on IMPACT concussion neuropsychological testing and has been an active evaluator on concussions for over 20 years.
His professional interests have included the desire to promote the newer functional training and rehabilitation that he believes will be the future standard for the training and rehabilitating of athletes in sports medicine.
Ruth Flucker is a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner at the Downtown ASU Campus and teaches in the nursing program at ASU. She received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing at Abertay University in Dundee Scotland and her Master of Science in Nursing Education at Arizona State University in 2009. She is a Certified Nurse Educator and earned her post master’s certification as a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner from ASU in 2011. Ruth became ANCC certified in 2012 as a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner. Her time as a clinical assistant professor at ASU helped her discover how much she enjoyed working with the student population and was a leading factor in her decision to pursue the position as a Psychiatric Nurse Practitioner for ASU. She feels like she is now at her dream job where she gets to both practice and teach.
Sharon completed her undergraduate degree at Hahnemann University in Philadelphia. She earned her Master’s Degree at Grand Canyon University in Phoenix. She is board certified as an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner by the ANCC. She is licensed through the Arizona State Board of Nursing. Her background as a Registered Nurse includes Emergency Services, Intensive Care, Outpatient Services, Interventional Radiology, and Oncology. Her training as an ACNP included Emergency Services, Hospitalist and Intensivist training. She chose to work at ASU Health Services as a Nurse Practitioner because of the unique and diverse student population that provides an environment conducive to providing excellent, quality driven patient care and health education. She chose a profession in health care because she finds it rewarding and enriching personally and professionally to make a difference in patient’s lives through giving the best care possible.
Dr. Stefanie Schroeder has been the Chief of Clinical Staff at ASU Health Services since July 2004. She was the Medical Director of a large volume Emergency Department in Mesa prior to coming to ASU. She is board certified in Emergency Medicine and has practiced Emergency Medicine for 10 years.
