Meet Us » Women’s Health Care In Durango, CO
Here at Sage Health Care we are proud not only to provide comprehensive and professional health care services to our patients, but to do this in a uniquely warm, comfortable and personable setting.
We are focused on each individual woman during her visit; we schedule visits lasting 1 hour for women’s wellness / annual exams or pelvic floor strengthening sessions as opposed to the usual 20 – 30 minute visit offered by many other clinics.
Our nurse practitioners provide direct care to you throughout your visit. Providing prompt and dependable follow up is one of our priorities.
Our primary goal is to meet the needs of our patients. We schedule regular appointments Monday and Thursday, and are available for urgent visits Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. Give us a call or connect with us through our electronic patient portal.
