living life
to the fullest.

In the end, it’s not the years in your life that count. It’s the life in your years. Thrive Primary Care at Woodland Park. We’re Teller County’s locally owned hub for exceptional primary and preventative care. We’re more than just a fix-it shop.

We’re here for you to thrive.

“James and Billie are absolutely amazing! The best care we have EVER received from ANY doctor/nurse practitioner, hands down! They always take time to listen to our concerns. I especially love that James himself makes followup calls days after an appointment to check on us. I’ve never had that before! Highly recommended.”

Primary Care means Family Care.

Thrive Primary Care. We do it all. We provide medical care from birth to death. We’ll be your personal advocate and lifeline within our current healthcare system. Privately owned, you are our friend and neighbor. You’ll never be a number to us. Most important, we focus on disease prevention before it disables. We’re here to educate and give you up-to-date medical options to put you in the driver’s seat in determining the right care for you.

You are what you eat.

As partners in your healthcare, let’s first see what you can do to improve your wellbeing. Hippocrates taught his medical students, “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food.” Two thousand years later we continue to prove his theory is spot-on!

Medicine only when needed.

There’s a proper time and place for pharmaceutical intervention. Blood pressure must be controlled. Diabetes must be managed. But be cautious in thinking a pill will cure all ills. James was professionally taught at Georgetown University that anyone taking 6 or more medications are at high risk for “polypharmacy”– treating patients for drug side effects, versus treating the disease. Avoiding polypharmacy is our goal for your care.
