Christopher Evilsizer knows exactly what kind of doctor he wants to be: “I want to be a doctor who never stops learning. I want to be a doctor who spends time with his patients. I want to be a doctor who understands that patients don’t only get sick during office hours. I want to be a doctor who can explain diagnoses and prognoses in a way that doesn’t confuse patients.” Evilsizer, who is board certified in Internal Medicine, attended medical school at the University of Colorado School of Medicine and completed his internship and residency at the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center.
He practices at Memorial as a hospitalist – a physician who specializes in the care of hospitalized patients. “I want to be a doctor that patients trust, he added. “I want to be a doctor who understands what an honor it is to be a doctor.” Dr. Evilsizer enjoys all sports – particularly soccer, golf, tennis and skiing.
