Western Colorado Pediatric Associates

Western Colorado Pediatric Associates provides exceptional medical care to the children of Western Colorado and Eastern Utah and has for more than 30 years. Our team of highly skilled pediatricians, advanced practitioners and nurses have consistently received excellent reviews from our many satisfied patients.  We see children from birth until their 18 year old "well visit" and for acute illness visits until they are 19 years old.  As teens are getting ready to move to an adult doctor we will help them with the transition to a doctor in the community who is better able to focus on more adult type of care.

We are open Monday – Friday, 8:00AM – 5:00PM and Saturday, 8:00AM – 12:00PM*
