Welcome to Aspen Medical Care.
Aspen Medical Care came to Aspen in 1997 and was born out of a vision to merge old fashioned health care with modern medical services. Since our inception and through our growth, we have expanded and been able to add a second home in Basalt. Because we have electronic medical records, our patients can easily move back and forth between the two offices seeking care where it is most convenient for them on that particular visit.
Our medical family consists of four full time Family Physicians and a Physician Assistant who provide full spectrum medical care from newborns to grandparents, as well as three Pediatricians who specialize in the health of children in the Roaring Fork Valley. Along with our providers, our friendly and welcoming front and back staff will do everything in their power to make you comfortable in your pursuit of health and health care.
In 2009 we moved our Aspen office to a permanent and more convenient location in the center of Aspen at the new Obermeyer Place. This space provides us with more rooms so that we can offer more accessible care to our patients. Our new location is closer to Aspen’s pharmacies, making it even more convenient for patients to obtain their medications.
Aspen Medical Care, in agreement with American Academy of Physicians and others, is not in favor of the use of medical marijuana, except in certain rare and unique circumstances. As a result, we do not prescribe medical marijuana. We recognize the controversies regarding this position so we've done a lot of investigation which we have summarized below. At the end of our summary, we have included a link to a recent article from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, published in September 2013, titled "Cannabis Revisited" which reinforces our thoughts on medical and recreational marijuana.Read More..
