Mary, Jennifer, and their team of dedicated and passionate nurse practitioners can provide you and your child with the care and treatment needed, in both sickness and in health. While there are many Pediatricians in the Denver area, here’s some reasons to choose Integrative Pediatric Health Care:

  • Expertise in caring for children whether they are ill or well
  • Can write prescriptions for the majority of a child’s needs
  • Can diagnose and treat acute and chronic conditions
  • Can order and interpret lab results and diagnostic imaging
  • Offer same day sick appointments
  • Longer appointment times than typical offices have

Looking for an alternative to your pediatrician or the best pediatrician for your newborn? The Nurse Practitioners will work with families to develop and maintain the health and wellbeing of their children. They take an integrative approach which focuses on healing and treating the child in the context of mutual goals with the parents. The principles of integrative care include:

  • Both patient and practitioner work together throughout the healing process.
  • All aspects which affect health, wellness, and illness are taken into account including mind, body, spirit, and community.
  • All healing sciences which can facilitate the body’s inherent healing response are used.
  • Effective treatments which are natural and less invasive will be used whenever conceivable.
  • Good medicine is based on science, inquiry driven, and open to new ideas.
  • Health advancement and the prevention of disease and sickness are of the utmost importance.
  • Customized care is the best way to address the individual’s personal conditions, needs, and situations. Understanding the unique needs of each person will ensure that the cause of the problem is determined and treated effectively.

I have been taking my son to see these amazing providers for 5 years (the first year I met Jen at a different practice). I will never take my son to another provider so long as Jen lives and works in Colorado! Always informative and kind, and never gives me a hard time about my new mom worries. I would recommend this practice for your family every time.

I am so glad I decided to bring my son to integrative paediatrics. They are very friendly and knowledgable and always available to answer my questions no matter the time of day. It’s so refreshing to find a practice that is truly child centred and practices a holistic approach.
