Happy June! As we kick off summer, GI of the Rockies is doing well. Our caseloads are growing, and we are ramping up our capabilities to support four new physicians who will join our team this summer. To all our new colleagues who have joined the GI of the Rockies family over the spring, we are excited to have you!
On July 19, the practice will welcome Dr. Wes Prichard. Dr. Prichard completed his GI and Hepatology Fellowship at Midwestern University/Mountain Vista Medical Center in Mesa Arizona. Dr. Prichard will be a south pod doctor and will primarily see patients at Denver West and Northglenn.
On August 2, the practice will welcome Dr. Sim (Simranjit) Bedi. Dr. Bedi completed his GI and Hepatology fellowship at Albert Einstein Medical Center in Philadelphia, PA. Dr. Bedi will be a north pod doctor and will see patients in Boulder County.
On August 16, the practice will welcome Dr. David Cristin. Dr. Cristin completed his GI and Hepatology fellowship at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus and completed additional studies in Transplant Hepatology. Dr. Cristin will see advanced liver disease patients and General GI patients in Boulder and Denver West.
On September 8, the practice will welcome Dr. Joshua Steinberg. Dr. Steinberg completed his Fellowship in GI and Hepatology at Georgetown University then pursued additional education in public health and health policy. Dr. Steinberg most recently completed his sub-specialty training at the prestigious University of Chicago Advanced IBD Fellowship program. Dr. Steinberg will serve as our Director of Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) and see patients primarily in Broomfield, Northglenn, and Denver.
Embracing this group of talented physicians and all our new colleagues is one more necessary component to our quest of advancing digestive health and quality of life for all our patients.
Lastly, I am excited that GI of the Rockies will again sponsor a team in the Walk To End Colon Cancer which will take place on June 26th at City Park in Denver. This is a wonderful partnership with the Colorectal Cancer Alliance that raises money to support patients, families, caregivers, and survivors of colorectal cancer. The Colorectal Cancer Alliance has done great work at raising awareness around prevention and influencing funding around critical research. I hope to see you all out there with your families on Saturday, June 26th. Our team for this event, the Polyp Pulverizers, will be celebrating the fact that this practice has removed more than 260,000 polyps since GI of Rockies was founded in 1996!
