Delta, CO (July 16th, 2019) -
Delta Hospital Welcomes New Family Medicine Physican
Delta County Memorial Hospital (DCMH) welcomed new provider, Dr. Amber Angles, to the Family Medicine team last week. Dr. Angles is a board certified family medicine practitioner with a specialized emphasis in obstetrics, and is trained to care for patients of all ages.
"I love being able to provide care for the entire family," said Dr. Angles. "Family practice doctors have a lot to offer their patients and the community and I can't wait to get started. I am especially eager to work with women, children and in prenatal care."
Originally from Ohio, Dr. Angles became involved in medicine because she noticed the lack of quality healthcare for rural communities.
"Growing up in Ohio I was around my grandparents who owned a farm and I have always loved having those rural roots," said Dr. Angles. "Being back in a rural community like Delta is exciting because I am able to give back through providing quality healthcare."
In serving rural communities, Dr. Angles also noticed a gap in women's healthcare and the need for accessible ways to seek treatment for specific health issues.
"It is important to have access to critical health exams like mammograms, pap smears, pelvic exams and more," Dr. Angles said. "Another important component to women's health is having access to quality prenatal care."
In the family practice the physicians are there to support patients through all the different stages of life from adolescence to adulthood. One area that Dr. Angles is excited to be a part of is the DCMH Stork's Landing team.
"I am really looking forward to working in Stork's Landing where we make patients feel safe, comfortable and taken care of," said Dr. Angles. "I will be with parents through the ups and downs of pregnancy and through delivering the baby. It will be an honor to be part of that entire process."
Dr. Angles received her undergraduate degree in Bio Chemistry from Maria College and in 2016 finished her medical degree. She then moved to Colorado with her husband Scott where she finished her residency in June 2019.
"When my husband and I moved to Colorado for my residency we both just fell in love with the state," said Dr. Angles. "We are eager to be around nature where we can hike, fish, camp, and explore places we've never seen before. We already have plans to rent a four-wheeler so we can try out Delta's nature trails."
Dr. Angles is excited to be part of the DCMH and is looking forward to furthering her work in the community as a partner and healthcare provider.
