Congratulations to the Primary Care Track residents who have been selected by faculty and colleagues as Chief Residents for the Internal Medicine Residency Program, AY21-22: Kathryn Guinn and AY22-23: Cara Saxon and Emily Scott. We are proud that they can represent GIM in their leadership roles.
We received excellent patient comments for Anschutz IM this month:

"Always appreciate the 'preventive care approach' and being able to talk with doctors and staff about any issues i have and getting realistic answers that mean something to me and my spouse. Not only from a health standpoint but from a psychological one as well."

"Dr. Doolan has been my doctor for a number of years. I have always received outstanding care; I truly trust him with my life. He is the best doctor I have ever met. I just saw Dr. Ross and I was impressed with him. He listens carefully, is thorough, and is very personable. I would highly recommend this office."
