New doctor joins practice in Winter Park

Byers Peak Family Medicine is about to enter its third year as your family’s medical home. I am excited to announce that my daughter, Kelley Glancey, M.D. will be joining me in practice beginning in June 2008. This expansion of the practice this summer will allow us to better serve our patients. We will now be able to be open 6 days a week and to expand our hours to include evening hours as needed throughout the year.

Kelley has been practicing medicine as a family doctor in Seattle, Wash. for the past three years. During that time, she has been doing routine family medicine, but as a female finds herself concentrating on gynecological and women’s health care. She will continue with both here in Winter Park. We both see a need for expanded women’s services in the community and value your trust and commitment to us as your family doctors.

Kelley comes to Grand County highly qualified and is very motivated to serve you. She attended University of Colorado for her undergraduate degree and then to George Washington Medical School. Kelley and her husband, John, met in Winter Park while he worked for ski patrol. She completed her family medicine residency in Washington. For them, returning to Grand County is coming home. They will be closer to their families as they plan on expanding their own.

Her relocation to Grand County cannot have come at a better time for me. My practice has grown so much, that I find my practice principles stretched. Many of you know that our practice is a “micropractice”. As the only employee, I have been able to be involved in all aspects of patient care. Not only am I the doctor, on-call 24/7, but I also schedule appointments, do refills and communicate directly with other providers. Being computer based allows a more efficient and lower cost practice. In turn, I can devote more time to every visit, if required and accomplish more at each visit.

The response to this practice has been overwhelming and the practice has expanded beyond my expectations. Kelley’s arrival will allow us to serve our patients and their families accordingly while maintaining our current principals, and maintaining the low overhead model. We are not planning to double our patient volume, but we should be able to be comfortable in our commitment to the Valley.

Kelley and I have always wanted to practice medicine together. I am so excited to have this opportunity. How many father-daughter teams actually get to say they realized their dream? And can provide better service to their patients while doing so?
