Peak Pediatrics-Winter Park welcomes Brian Gablehouse, MD, to staff

Winter Park, CO Colorado

WINTER PARK – Peak Pediatrics Winter Park has announced the addition of Brian Gablehouse, MD, to its practice.

Dr. Brian is originally from Denver and spent many winters and summers in Grand County while growing up. He had a deep fondness for skiing, mountain biking, snowshoeing, and the beauty of life in the Winter Park area.

He graduated from Arvada West High School, attended UC Boulder and graduated with bachelor’s in music. Brian also earned an elementary teaching certificate while at UC Boulder and taught 3-6th grade at Fairmount Elementary and Kendallvue Elementary in Jefferson County.

While teaching, Brian was motivated to become a doctor and practice medicine because teaching and medicine are similar – both try to make kids’ lives better. He also likes the challenge of medicine because it is ever-changing and he loves learning new things. He met his future wife Lindsay at UC Boulder. Lindsay grew up in Glenwood Springs.

Dr. Brian completed pre-med courses through Metropolitan State University then attended medical school at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center in Denver.

Because of his love of children and being a part of their lives, Brian chose a residency in pediatrics at the University of California-Davis in Sacramento, Calif.

While Brian and Lindsay were in California, they missed their family, friends, Colorado and specifically, skiing in Winter Park. Dr. Brian reports that they chose to come back to Colorado so that he would be able to practice medicine “at home” as well as teach his kids “how to ski bumps on Mary Jane”. Brian and Lindsay have two children, Zach, 3, and Ethan, 10 months.

Brian will be practicing regularly at Peak Pediatrics in Winter Park. Peak Pediatrics is located at Winter Park Station. It is open Monday through Friday, with appointments available from 9 a.m. to 3:40 p.m. daily; also accepting walk-in patients.

Medical providers include Dr. Brian Gablehouse, Dr. Barbara Gablehouse, and pediatric nurse practitioners Kelly Chasin, Miesha Anderson, and Julie Knauf. For further information or to schedule an appointment, call 970-726-1135.
