Colleen Bird, PA-C
In order to provide my patients with the best care possible, I strive to create an atmosphere of open communication and trust. I want my patients to feel comfortable asking me questions and expressing any concerns. I believe in shared decision making and spend time educating my patients about their health and treatment plan and developing healthy goals together. I think of us as a team and feel honored they have chosen me to facilitate their care.

Accepts both children and adults
Practicing medicine for over 18 years, the majority of my experience has been in hematology and oncology. I also have a strong interest in women's health.
I love spending time outdoors with my family – bike riding and hiking, skiing, sledding, playing tennis and roasting marshmallows.
