With the addition of two new providers, UCHealth expanded its primary care options in Longmont in September. Another new provider is boosting access to cardiology services in Fort Collins as well.

All three providers are now caring for patients as part of UCHealth’s provider group, Colorado Health Medical Group.

Dr. Stephanie Dettlebach joined the family medicine team at UCHealth Longmont Clinic, 1925 W. Mountain View Ave.

As a primary care provider, Dettlebach strongly believes in prevention and treating the person as a whole, not just the symptoms.

“I believe mental and physical health are intertwined,” she said.

She is interested in treating entire families, women’s health, child and adolescent health. She also is certified by the National Committee for Quality Assurance in diabetes management.

Dettlebach earned a medical degree from Wright State University School of Medicine in Dayton, Ohio.  She completed a residency in family medicine at Barberton Citizens Hospital in Barberton, Ohio.

Physician assistant Mark Malone joined the internal medicine team at UCHealth Longmont Clinic.

He believes in always putting the patient first, from involving patients in the decisions about their care to answering all of their questions in terms that they can understand.

“I understand that the process of medicine is often confusing to many and will do my best to provide a clear understanding of health problems and a plan of action,” he said.

Malone has a background in internal medicine, orthopedics and emergency medicine.

He earned an associate of applied science degree in physician assistant studies from Cuyahoga Community College in Parma, Ohio.
