As we are literally catching up with your care needs, our office will be extending clinic hours, and operations until such time that your care is caught up. Please call 719-576-5566 to schedule now as there is a bit of competition for the most convenient treatment times slots already occurring.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING DURING THIS TRYING TIME.  WE ARE, AND ALWAYS WILL BE HERE FOR YOU.
