Ongoing physician recruitment to provide access to care is a top Strategic Initiative for Estes Park Health in 2018, and an area where there has been substantial success.
New physicians for Internal Medicine and Pediatrics
To increase our access to high quality care in the Estes Valley, Estes Park Health has successfully recruited Joseph Lee, MD, and Julie Schneider, MD, Internal Medicine, and Patti Aldridge, MD, Pediatrics.
Dr. Lee has been working in the Estes Park Health Physician Clinic for several months and officially joined Estes Park Health on October 23, 2018. Dr. Lee is a graduate of Northwestern University Medical School and did his Residency at Georgetown University. He is certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Dr. Lee credits his father, who grew up in a poor, rural town in South Korea, as the inspiration for his career choice. “He was raised in a traditional Asian culture,” says Dr. Lee about his dad, a pediatrician. “He cared about others and wanted to help his family and community. And he imparted those values and goals to me.” Dr. Lee takes an educational approach with his patients, teaching them about their health to facilitate their decisions.
