ABOUT THE STAFF
M. James Dionisio D.C., Clinic Director
I grew up on Long Island, New York in a small town, called Miller Place. At the age of 15, while driving with my mom in the car, a small voice spoke to me, and told me I should become a chiropractor.
Since that moment I never considered anything else.
I graduated high school in 1986, then off to Saint Joseph’s College (1986-1988) to complete the requirements for me to get into Chiropractic School, at Life University in Georgia (1988-1992).
After graduation from Chiropractic School in 1992, I moved to Arizona. Initially, I practiced in Tempe. Eventually, I opened my own practice in Metro Center (Phoenix), Arrowhead (Peoria), Desert Ridge (Phoenix), Ahwatukee Foothills where I now reside, and finally the Phoenix Ahwatukee area where our current office is located.
For the past 20 years, I have been married to my beautiful wife, Lisa (who I met in the Chiropractic business). Lisa keeps herself busy running her businesses, Standard X-Ray, Innerlight Dance Center and H.D. Liquidators, and raising our 17 year old daughter Amanda. Amanda is my greatest success. She enjoys reading, writing and baking, but most of all she loves to dance.
Our home also includes a 3-year-old Frenchie, Capone, who we rescued. And an 14-year-old Boston Terrier, Princess. We are just happy that the two of them let us live there.
My mom lives in Ahwatukee, where she recently reluctantly retired. My two sisters Nancy and Andrea, both younger than myself, live out of state with their families. Each of them has two daughters and a son.
In my spare time, I love to road bike, mountain bike, play softball and golf. I also enjoy traveling to San Diego, watching baseball, going to the movies and I’m a huge fan of the band RUSH!
Irasela Borquez, C.A.,L.M.T., Office Manager
Born in Albuquerque New Mexico, I moved to Arizona with my entire family at the age of 7 years old and I’ve called Arizona home ever since. I graduated from Chandler high school, where I played softball and took graphic design classes in 2007.
After injuring myself senior year varsity softball, I turned to being on the other side of sports, the medical rehabilitation side.
I started massage school 2 days after graduation and graduated one year later as a Licensed Massage Therapist and have been working to restore health and function for over 10 years. I have worked in Physical Medicine Clinics, Chiropractic Clinics, and Golf Body Works – a stretch clinic in Scottsdale stretching and massaging golfers and athletes.
I currently work as the office manager at Platinum Medical Group in the Ahwatukee / Phoenix area and have been assisting with patient care and keeping the office working as one unit for over 5 years.
When I’m not working, I go to school, try to get out doors exploring, hiking, camping, or hunting, and have been a happy mother to many fur babies for the past 12 or so years. I am attending Grand Canyon University, where I am working to expand my knowledge and complete a nursing degree.
I look forward to expanding my skills and thus furthering my career in the medical field.

Received a masterfully effective and relaxing massage! Highly recommend Platinum Medical Group and highly recommend the therapist Lita, shes is AMAZING.” – SZ
She is available Monday through Fridays, morning and afternoon appointments, and is only a phone call away from providing you the care you deserve.
Originally born in Ft. Wayne, Indiana, and moved to Arizona right before high school. I attended Northern Arizona University and received Bachelors in Business Administration – Marketing with an emphasis in Sales in May of 2020.
When I’m not in the office, I am either hanging out with friends, taking day trips, and catching up on my favorite TV shows. I spend a lot of time with my immediate family as well as my friends here in Phoenix and am about to move into my first apartment! I am excited about the opportunity here at Platinum Medical Group of Arizona and thankful to have found such an amazing team!
