My Husband and I had an appointment with Dr.M Simmons today as our previous provider was no longer part of UCHealth providers.He was great. He is informative, takes time, asks questions, answers questions and was very professional. Took a lot of time asking questions and answering concerns. Kudos!! His office staff were friendly and appts. ran on time...What a relief....it is always disconcerting when you have to switch physicians after 20 years.Thanks Dr. Simmons for making this transition easy..

My wife has experienced extreme pain for years. We have went to multiple Doctors but they all gave up before finding the source. Dr. Pelloquin stayed focused on it and stayed after it and we have found the source of the pain. She is a bulldog in a good way.

Tips & Advices
An osteopathic physician practices a comprehensive form of medicine that takes a holistic approach to a person's health. Instead of specializing in one system or set of organs, an osteopathic specialist focuses on the health of the total body. This includes evaluating environmental factors that affect a person's well-being.
Many family doctors deliver babies, especially in rural areas without a nearby OB/GYN. However, most family doctors only deliver for low-risk pregnancies and do not perform cesarean sections.
Family nurse practitioners are highly educated nurses able to provide medical care individually or with the assistance of another professional. Family nurse practitioners obtain a Bachelor of Science in Nursing and then take the National Council Licensure Examination to begin working as a registered nurse. Then, they continue their education and obtain a Master of Science in Nursing. Following that, they become certified in family practice via the American Nurses Credentialing Center of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, allowing them to become certified family nurse practitioners.
Some family doctors provide immunizations while others do not. Typically, doctors who work as part of a large practice are more likely to offer vaccines in-house. Doctors in offices of one to two physicians are more likely to refer patients to a public health department or other immunization provider.
A physician's assistant is a person qualified to perform routine medical services. This individual is professionally licensed and certified, but they may not have the extensive med school education of a doctor.That said, PAs do complete almost three years of postgraduate study and more than 2,000 hours of rotations.
