Dr. Andrew Villamanga has already been ingraining himself into the lives of Kremmling residents. He met with West Grand students as part of Career Night, has hosted informational seminars, and has begun forging relationships with his patients. He hopes to care for the whole family, cradle to grave.

Kremmling has recently welcomed a new doctor. Dr. Andrew Villamagna relocated from Florida where he practiced for eight years after completing his studies at the University of Wisconsin. He is now committed to Kremmling and plans to provide stability in Kremmling’s healthcare.

“I am glad to be here,” said Dr. Villamagna, “I look forward to building relationships with families and getting to know them.”

Dr. Villamagna’s philosophy is nearly nostalgic with his focus on family medicine, “I want to take care of patients from cradle to grave,” he remarked. “This is why I am doing it.”

In Florida, his patient base was predominantly geriatric, but he is more than ready to provide care to infants and teens. With three children, he is comfortable with all ages, and he hopes that parents will use the clinic for wellness checks too.

“I want to know my patients when they are healthy,” remarked Dr. Villamagna who is ready to forge long-term relationships. “Preventive medicine is a big portion of family healthcare.”

Alternative medicine is also part of Dr. Villamagna’s repertoire. “I was trained in integrative medicine science at the University of Wisconsin and am intimately familiar with alternative medicine. I am willing to work with patients who are interested in these treatment modalities.”

Originally from New York, Dr. Villamagna is no stranger to Colorado. Before becoming a doctor, he attended the School of Mines and graduated with a chemical engineering degree which he used in the oil industry for ten years.

Medicine has always beckoned to Dr. Villemagna though, and while on the oilfields, he honed his medical skills. He was an industrial fire fighter, industrial EMT, and went on oil refinery rescues.

He brings these experiences to his new role in the Kremmling community, and in the future, he will train with the Grand County Search and Rescue on Wednesday nights. Dr. Villamagna will also be a familiar face at high school athletic events and take a more prominent role in educating Kremmling’s residents in healthcare topics. In coordination with the Middle Park Medical Center, he will host informational seminars and publish articles. About his expanding role in Kremmling,

Dr. Villamagna commented, “That’s why I came to a small town.”

In his free time, he is excited to pursue his passions and explore outdoor activities in Kremmling. His new property on Gore Lakes has a barn and a chicken coop, and his sister has horses in Colorado Springs. His future plans include trail riding with his sister, snowmobiling, and fishing.

He also hopes to return to his former loves of hunting and triathlons.

“I want to start running the trails, mountain biking the trails, and swimming in the reservoirs.”
