Children's Hospital Colorado | July 28, 2017
Dr. Robin Deterding shines a light into a child's mouth in an exam room. She has shoulder length blonde hair and is wearing a white lab coat. The 5280 Magazine logo is superimposed over the image in the top right corner.

The magazine's annual list of outstanding Denver-area doctors is published in the August issue.

Our doctors are committed to delivering the best possible care day in and day out. The dedication and passion, thoughtfulness and genuine sense of caring truly makes our staff unique. That's why we're thrilled to congratulate 117 of our doctors for making this year's 5280 magazine "Top Docs" list.

In compiling the Top Docs list, the magazine turned to Denver physicians for their opinion. For the past 22 years, 5280 has surveyed doctors and asked them, specialty by specialty, which metro-area physicians they would trust to treat themselves and their families.
