“I look forward to working with people in Chaffee County and Central Colorado to provide services vital to the community. For many years, I have chosen to work in areas that are more rural as I believe it is so important to improve quality of life and keep healthcare close to where people live. I also enjoy being a liaison for patients receiving care at referral institutions in Denver, Colorado Springs and other areas where people can receive treatments close to home. It is a privilege to be able to help patients meet their needs and achieve their goals,” said Dr. Arrambide.
