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.

******Moving to an Electronic Health Record******

As of August 2015, the Family Clinic has started using our first electronic health record, EPIC. This is the system used by the University of Colorado, and a highly regarded system. However, the transition to a first electronic record is notoriously slow and involves a learning curve. Please be patient with us as we start this process, which will entail us being a bit slower in the room with you, as well as being a bit slower with scheduling in general as we get used to using the system. We appreciate your patience!

Welcome to Dr. Mitch Janasek...

We would like to extend a huge welcome to Dr. Mitch Janasek. Dr. Mitch joined the practice in May 2016.

Please see "Our Physicians" to learn more about our newest physician.

Welcome to Dr. Scarlet Sparkuhl Delia...

We would like to extend another huge welcome, to Dr. Scarlet Sparkuhl Delia. She has joined the practice as of August 31, 2016.

Please see "Our Physicians" to learn more about her.

The Family Clinic is back to accepting new patients (Hooray!!!)

We know that our long standing patients have suffered through longer than usual wait times to schedule with us, due to several factors, including physician retirements (Dr. Bender and then recently Dr. Thorson),  your tremendous loyalty, and word of mouth new patient growth. The Family Clinic has always prided ourselves on getting you seen as fast as we can (and we greatly value your loyalty during this busy time we have been in). As a result, we had closed to new patients for several months.


However, we have been lucky enough to have recently added Dr. Mitch Janasek and Dr. Scarlet Sparkuhl Delia to the office family (to learn more about them, see the "Our Physicians" link above)

And so, after too long a time, we are back to accepting new patients!

We look forward to meeting you here in the office.

And to our loyal, long standing patients, we thank you for the trust that you continue to place in us. It is our great pleasure to help care for your health needs.



(Please note: our practice remains closed to "new" Medicare patients, although we gladly continue to care for our established patients that age in to Medicare.)
