What we do
When you need care for common conditions, we’ve got you and your family covered. As your primary care provider, we know you and your medical history and can provide individualized care tailored to your needs. Services our primary care providers perform include:
- Wellness and preventive care
- Diagnosis and treatment of complex illnesses
- Sick care
- Ongoing care for chronic medical conditions
- In-office procedures, such as joint injections, minor skin biopsies and lesion removal, toenail procedures, and splinting
We are not only leaders in the medical office, but also the communities we serve. We are part of a national Kaiser Permanente effort to use various sources of data to develop breakthroughs in the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of disease.
The Primary Care Department is your home in an extensive, connected network of care that spans dozens of specialties. We believe you should be able to get answers to your health-related questions when they arise, not just when our medical offices are open. That’s why Kaiser Permanente offers many options for you to get care, such as same-day appointments, online chat, email, 24/7 medical guidance by telephone, video visits, and more.
Who we are
We are the largest department in Kaiser Permanente Colorado. Our physicians consist of those who practice family medicine (care for adults and children), internal medicine, and pediatrics. They lead care teams that have pharmacists, dietitians, specialists in diabetes, asthma, and behavioral health, complex care coordinators, and social workers, all partnering to get you the treatment you need, when you need it.

All Kaiser Permanente doctors and medical professionals, in every department, are connected to each other — and you — through your electronic health record system. This means that we are always on the same page when it comes to your care. For example, if you are ever hospitalized or seek care from a specialist, the notes about the care you receive are entered into your record and sent directly to your primary care providers. We coordinate your care, so you don’t have to.
The way we practice medicine at Kaiser Permanente gives us the freedom to focus on care, rather than running a business. We are free to practice medicine the way it is supposed to be practiced — with a focus on providing expert, compassionate care to you.
Every member of your care team is here to support you through your journey. When you have excellent doctors, truly connected care teams, advanced technology, and the right partners, you can expect great results.
Each year, Kaiser Permanente doctors are recognized as top doctors by their peers and publications such as 5280 magazine. Some have joined us from top-ranked academic training programs and successful private practices. Others have been honored for their invaluable contributions to medical advancements and new surgical techniques that help patients heal quickly and with less pain.
Our hospital partners have a track record of success and are often recognized as regional or national centers of excellence for their specialties. We also partner with national organizations, contributing to large, cutting-edge, research projects.
