“I really wanted a job that I felt I could help make a difference in the community,” said Dr. Mark Wisner of his new position at Middle Park Health.
“I really like longitudinal care and intergenerational care – truly a family practice where I look after the kids, parents and grandparents. I want to know more about my patients’ health than the cough that brought them into the office.”
Dr. Wisner continued, “Care is relatively fractured.” He explained of current health trends, “I want to offer primary care to everyone in the family and improve people’s lives. I want to do more for patients.”
“I also love pediatrics. I love seeing kids,” he emphasizes of his family approach to healthcare.
He began his career as a research scientist and had his eye on orthopedic surgery when he realized, that although he loved science, he also loved daily interactions with others.
“Medicine is a great way to meld together my aptitude of science and love of people. I want to help affect change. I view my job as an educator, and I help my patients to make decisions that will improve their lives as they move along their health path.” His early training also offers him a niche in muscular skeletal care. “I had an opportunity to do a lot of sports medicine.”
Dr. Wisner grew-up in Colorado Springs and attended CU of Boulder where he received his undergraduate degree in molecular biology. He then began his medical training at Touro University in California before returning back to Colorado to complete his training. He finished his residency at St. Anthony Hospital in Denver. After owning his own private practice and later working for Boulder Community Health, he and his wife of 16 years, decided they would like to move from the Front Range. “I specifically looked for positions off the 1-70 corridor,” Dr. Wisner stated of their move and searching for a different culture.
“I wanted to feel at home,” said Wisner of their move to Summit County as they search for a home in Kremmling.
Outside of practicing medicine, Dr. Wisner’s time is family focused. He and his wife have a 15-year-old son and a 12-year-old daughter. “I love hanging out with my family, generally enjoying outdoors.” This family of four camps, hikes, skis, and often mountain bikes together. .
Dr. Wisner, replaces Dr. Andrew Villamanga, and will continue community education efforts by hosting informational seminars and publishing articles. His first seminar was on Wednesday and covered the benefits of receiving flu vaccinations.
