Each year, Colorado Springs Style magazine lists doctors in its September issue who are voted the best at what they do by their peers.

This year, Children’s Colorado physicians were again recognized for their continued commitment to care for children in the southern Colorado region. Their dedication to excellence makes a difference in the lives of our team and children every day. That is why we are proud to congratulate five of our doctors working at our Briargate location, as well as our Children’s Colorado credentialed community doctors and those who work with and lead our team members in the community.

The magazine surveys doctors in the community who are registered with the El Paso County Medical Society and asks them which Colorado Springs-area doctors registered with the society who they consider to be the best in their respective specialties.
