Clear Creek Family Practice
Clear Creek Family Practice is a warm, friendly, outpatient provider of FAMILY MEDICINE and other SPECIALTY SERVICES in Denver, Colorado, just west of Lakeside Amusement Park. We are located on the 5th floor of the Chase building on Harlan Street at I-70.
The speciality of FAMILY MEDICINE includes care for most problems for all members of the family. We offer well baby and child care, routine physical exams for women and men, minor surgery and care for most illnesses.
We are unique in that we are an all female practice; caring, intuitive and holistic in our approach. Our philosophy is that our bodies and our physical illnesses are connected to our emotional and spiritual selves, and that we often express emotional discord by becoming physically ill. We prefer to treat the whole person and not just the illness.
We also believe your medical care should be a cooperative effort between you and your provider. To serve you better, we have four providers to choose from. In addition to our Medical Director, Dr. Karen Larson, we also have Dr Linda Reschl, Dr. Ana Gardner, and Physician Assistant Meg Hartley, for a full compliment of providers to assist you.
