Tim Kruse, MD

Basalt

Tim Kruse, MD, has practiced Family Medicine in the Roaring Fork Valley since 1999. He has served as the Chairman of the Department of Medicine and as a member of the Medical Care Evaluation Committee at Valley View Hospital. Additionally, he served as a member of the Executive Committee at his former practice before founding his own practice in 2006.

After attending the first national conference on Concierge Medicine in 2005 and at the urging of many of his patients he founded the first concierge medicine practice in Colorado outside of the Denver area. “The model gives me the opportunity to go above and beyond for my patients, acting as their trusted medical advocate, getting them the care and resources they need when and where they need it. The major benefit of our practice…is time. A lack of time requires shortcuts. It breeds mediocrity. There is no substitute for time if medical excellence is the goal.”
