Boulder Medical Center is pleased to announce the opening of its medical clinic in Erie, Colorado. Located at 89 South Briggs, Suite 105, the clinic gives local families better access to high-quality Family Medicine and Pediatric care.

“We’ve taken great care to tailor this clinic to the needs that the community told us they want,” said Mindy Markley, Director of Operations at Boulder Medical Center. “The practice is centrally located in Erie with easy access and parking, and we’ve created an inviting and family-friendly environment within the clinic itself.”

The Erie location will house family medicine physician, John Kelley, MD along with five board-certified pediatricians:  Cheryl Cavanaugh MD, Maureen Dickerson MD, Timothy Jaeger, MD, Andrea Mertz MD, and Melissa Serlen, MD.

The physicians are welcoming new patients for in-person and telemedicine visits. In light of Covid-19 health considerations, the providers encourage patients to ask their care team which type of visit is recommended.
