New Doc Fills Need for Women's Health and Osteopathic Services
This week the Telluride Regional Medical Center announced the addition of a new family care provider to the medical staff. Christine Mahoney, D.O., will begin seeing patients this month at the busy primary care practice.
As a doctor of osteopathy, and graduate of the University of New England College of Osteopathic Medicine, Dr. Mahoney is a primary care doctor with special interest in pediatrics and women’s health. She provides a range of routine gynecological services and special procedures that include IUD insertions; colposcopies; endometrial biopsies.
Her practice also includes osteopathic manipulation to help patients with conditions like painful periods, chronic lung disease, headaches, musculoskeletal pain, TMJ or newborns with poor feeding.
“A great day for me is when I can see a newborn and a 93 year old,” said Dr. Mahoney.
Dr. Mahoney, a native Vermonter, first visited the area for a Bluegrass Festival and, like many guests to the region, wondered what it would be like to live here year round. Years passed. And then, a few months ago: synchronicity.
As she and her family were looking for a community to match their ideal small-town and active lifestyle, a quick Google search revealed the Telluride Regional Medical Center was looking for someone to join their small team of primary care providers.
“My original vision for going into medicine was to be the kind of doc that made house calls carrying a black bag. Today, in Telluride, I have that extraordinary opportunity to witness people’s lives and gain a global view of my patient’s life and health,” said Dr. Mahoney.
Dr. Sharon Grundy, medical director at the medical center, also finds the match kismet.
"Dr. Mahoney practices what we believe here: exceptional care requires a holistic approach and our lives, lifestyle, body, mind and health are intertwined."
"And she’s filling a real need here for expanded women's health care and osteopathic services,” added Dr. Grundy.
