Welcome to the Family Clinic of Fort Collins

Welcome to the Family Clinic of Fort Collins. We are a group of family practice physicians, taking care of patients and their families in Northern Colorado since 1974. The physicians and staff of the Family Clinic have deep roots in the community, as well as long standing relationships with local physician specialists, various therapists, and complimentary medicine providers. We are here to help you achieve your individual health and wellness goals, at all stages of life, from times of illness to striving toward optimum health. If you are an established patient, then we thank you for trusting us to care for you and your family. And if you are visiting the website to learn more about us, then we thank you for taking the initiative to improve your health, and we look forward to meeting you soon.

BILLING STATEMENTS - Please ignore statements from 2009 if received, we had a glitch in our statement run this month.  This has been corrected and you will be getting a new billing shortly.  So sorry for any confusion and thanks for your patience.  Joely<< New text box >>


We sincerely appreciate your patience in recent times, as we know that wait times for visits have been longer than we would like. We strive to have quick availability for patient visits, and this has been difficult recently. Between Dr. Bender's retirement and the wonderful word of mouth referrals of new patients, we have been a bit busier than we would like. We are very actively looking to recruit a new physician (or two!), but this takes time (as we would only hire a pretty outstanding doctor to join the Family Clinic).

So again, thanks for your patience with us while we strive to meet and exceed all of our patients' needs and expectations. We appreciate the trust you place in us, and we value the relationships we get to enjoy with you!

A big thank you to Dr. Ed Bender...


After 37 years of caring, compassion, and dedication to his patients and the community, Dr. Ed Bender has retired as of December 31st, 2013 (in spite of all our attemtps to keep him here in the office!). It is with our warmest regards that we wish him a peaceful and wonderful retirement. The Family Clinic also wants to thank you in the community for all the well wishes you have sent to Dr. Ed as he approached his retirement. 


The physicians of the Family Clinic will continue to care for all of Dr. Bender's patients with complete continuity, especially as many of his patients have already had an opportunity to meet one of the other doctors here already. We know we have awfully big shoes to fill!!
