The physicians at Longs Peak Family Practice are all residency trained and board certified in Family Medicine. Additionally, Drs. Madden, Myers, and Traister have completed a fellowship and are board certified in sports medicine.
Drs. Madden, Myers, and Traister have two practices – sports medicine (specialty) and family practice (primary care). They accept new sports medicine patients and consultations, but sometimes their family practices are full. Sports medicine patients who wish to become family medicine patients may ask to be added to a wait list and will be called when there are openings in the family practice.
We offer fullspectrum family medicine, including pediatric and newborn care. Family medicine encompasses a broad range of medical problems across all ages, from newborn to senior. We enjoy providing care for:
- Adults Women’s wellness and gynecological issues
- Health promotion and disease prevention
- Sports medicine
- Office procedures (including mole removal, skin biopsy, pap smears, fracture care, endometrial biopsy, vasectomy, etc.)
You should consider us your primary source of health care, whether you want us to treat an illness or to help you maintain good health. Our training allows us to address the vast majority of medical problems that you may have, and we have good access to area specialists if we are not able to handle your particular problem.
We do not require a complete physical on your first visit, but we think it is important for all of our family medicine patients to have a complete physical early in our association so that we may get to know everyone better medically and personally. This helps us take better care of you. Modern medicine now has cures and solutions for many serious illnesses, but what you do to prevent disease is extremely important. We stress good health habits to our patients: a nutritious diet, regular exercise, adequate rest, moderation of alcohol use, avoidance of tobacco, seatbelt use, and opportunities to relax and to enjoy life.
Patient-Centered Medical Home
The primary care medical home is accountable for meeting the large majority of each patient’s physical and mental health care needs, including prevention and wellness, acute care, and chronic care. Read more on our Patient-Centered Medical Home page.
We care for all our newborns and children at Longmont United Hospital, and we partner with the Longmont United hospitalists (primary care doctors that only work in the hospital) in caring for our adult patients. The hospitalists usually take care of admissions to the hospital through the emergency room, while we may continue care into the hospital for admissions directly from our office. At times, we may call in other specialists to help in the quality care of our hospitalized patients.
If for some reason there has been a breakdown in communication between the hospital and our office and you have been admitted to the hospital and have not seen one of our office physicians within 24 hours of admission, please give our office a call.
An emergency is a sudden medical problem where there is danger to life or possible permanent damage to health. Some examples of these include significant difficulty breathing, bleeding, severe chest or abdominal pain, and loss of consciousness. Medication refills or illnesses that have been going on for days or weeks are rarely emergencies, though there are some exceptions. If you have an emergency, you may call 303.772.5578 during office hours to speak with a medical assistant, or after office hours to have the doctor on call paged. If the emergency may be threatening your life call 911.
