Topic: The Cancer You CAN Find

Dr. West founded Dermatology of Northern Colorado in 1987. She has devoted herself to her patients and the pursuit of excellence in dermatology health care.

“My work as a physician is a calling rather than a job and I find something enjoyable and rewarding in every day I work. I love developing relationships with patients and within this community”.

She is blessed to be married to Craig. Her church life is important to her; she loves the mountains, and counts it a joy to have three adult sons, her mother and many extended family members nearby.

Dr. West grew up in Denver, returning to Colorado after completing her residency in Dermatology at the University of Missouri Hospital and Clinics in Columbia, Missouri.
