Pediatrics in Aspen & Basalt, Colorado
Aspen Medical care provides full spectrum pediatric and adolescent care from birth to 18 years old. Dr. Guggenheim and Dr. Harris have over 42 years of combined experience in Pediatric medicine and are both Board Certified Pediatricians. We see our patients in both the Aspen and Basalt offices.
We start by offering a complimentary visit before your baby is born. During this visit, you’ll be able to get to know us and our clinic staff. Interview us! We want to make sure your questions are answered! When you deliver, all you need to do is tell the staff at Aspen Valley Hospital that you’d like your baby’s doctor to be Drs Guggenheim and Harris with Aspen Medical Care, and they’ll take it from there!
We’ll make every effort to see you and your baby in the hospital at Aspen Valley Hospital. Sometimes this isn’t possible, and we’ll be waiting to meet your baby in the clinic. We see every newborn one to two days after discharge from the hospital, at two weeks of age, and at 1 month of age. We take care at these visits to discuss your baby’s nutrition, support breastfeeding or formula use, sleep, skin care, how to manage a fussy baby, and many other issues!
Well child care continues regularly as your child grows. At each preventative visit we will check your baby’s growth, development, screen for mental health issues, discuss your concerns, and give you anticipatory guidance. We will help you keep your child on track with vaccines and recommend ways to keep your child safe. Drs. Harris and Guggenheim endorse the American Academy of Pediatrics and CDC immunization schedule. We can help parents navigate vaccine information. Our job is to help your child grow into the best version of themselves. Happy, healthy children are the goal!
Along the way, we care for colds, sniffles, bumps, bruises, and a wide range of other ailments and injuries. We perform simple laceration repairs, splinting potential fractures and sprains, and return to sports after concussion discussions routinely. We can also test for influenza, RSV, strep, mononucleosis and UTIs in the office. We help in medication management of mental health issues, including Attention Deficit Disorder, depression, and anxiety.
We offer same day appointments for sick visits and acute issues. Even if a same day appointment isn’t available, you can walk into either of our clinics and be seen on the same day!* All we ask of our walk in patients is some patience – a provider will see you as soon as possible between other patients.
