Jamie Glover, MD

Monument
Read Bio

I am a family physician, wife, mom and veteran. I have been practicing medicine since 1999 when I received my M.D. in Bethesda, Maryland. I enjoy the full spectrum of family medicine to include care for younger and older adults, teens, children and infants. I enjoy women’s and men’s health, office gynecology, acute care, office procedures from stitches to joint injections, sports medicine and behavioral health. I have special interests and experience in adolescent medicine, contraceptive procedures (to include IUDs and implants), and HIV medicine.

​I served as a physician in the United States Air Force for nine years until 2008, practicing outpatient, hospital, obstetric, emergency and deployed medicine during that time. I was also on the teaching faculty at Eglin AFB Family Medicine Residency. After separating from the Air Force, I continued practicing medicine in varied settings as I followed my husband from state to state until his own retirement from the Air Force in 2015.

Besides being the founder & solo-physician at Glover Family Medicine and a medical director with VeraCare Hospice, I am also currently appointed as an assistant clinical professor for the University of Colorado School of Medicine. I hope to grow my practice to the point where I can have a medical student or resident rotate with me. I would like to help them gain an appreciation for the beautiful specialty of family medicine (and maybe even recruit them into the specialty). I want to introduce students and residents to primary care as it was meant to be... relationship-based, not production-based. I hope to show them that there are alternatives to "assembly-line medicine".

​From my work in all of these settings, I have gained insight into many of the issues surrounding access to affordable primary care in our nation. I have lived and practiced in the Monument/Colorado Springs area since 2012 and we have chosen to settle here near our alma mater, the US Air Force Academy. I am ready to have my own clinic that cultivates a sense of community and where my patients have time to personally connect with me. My husband and I have two children in D38. Our family enjoys supporting Air Force Academy athletics and living the mountain lifestyle.

My education began in the United States Air Force. l was a Chinese Linguist in USAF Military Intelligence. It was in the Air Force that I discovered the Physician Assistant, as they were the primary healthcare providers for the military. After 4 years of military service, I decided to change careers and returned to Nebraska to pursue my own career as a PA.

I completed my master’s in Medicine/Physician Assistant Studies at UNMC in 1997. I have practiced Family Medicine in Gretna, Nebraska, ever since and have Ioved every minute. Over the years, I’ve enjoyed the dimensions family practice has to offer – Pediatrics and Geriatrics. My focus is preventive medicine and wellness. I have a special interest in Adolescent Medicine, hormone imbalance and holistic therapies. I believe treating the whole person is the best way to achieve optimal health.

Early in my career, I organized health fairs to bring awareness to heart disease prevention and outlined healthy eating guidelines, called “Lynn’s Lites” to help my patients make better lifestyles and dietary changes. I also belong to the Citizens Committee to Provide a Safe and Healthy Environment for the Youth of Gretna. This allows me to communicate high risk behaviors amongst our youth, such as STD, drug and alcohol trends, so that we may help our kids make better, healthier choices and bridge the communication gap between parents and children through awareness.

For these efforts, I was humbly honored with the Physician Assistant of the Year award in 2003.

Wendy has been a Family Nurse Practitioner for almost 20 years. She has worked at Methodist Hospital’s Emergency Department for most of that time. Her practice in Integrative Care started to emerge in 2010, after attending multiple conferences through Harvard’s Institute of Lifestyle Medicine. It became apparent that most of her Emergency Department patients could have used some degree of lifestyle modification long before she saw them. For the last 2 years, Wendy has proposed and piloted a comprehensive Wellness Program for the employees of Methodist Hospital, while attending Methodist College for a post-master’s certificate in Wellness and Health Promotion.

This experience and education, along with a passion to care for the whole person, evolved into a natural partnership with Omaha Integrative Care. Wendy’s practice is based on the Integrative Care Model (which is not Alternative Healthcare); it’s an approach that addresses the full range of physical, emotional, mental, social, spiritual, and environmental influences that affect a person’s health. Treatments that are natural and less invasive are used whenever possible. Health promotion and prevention of illness are at the forefront of this patient, family, and community-centered practice. Wendy can provide primary care for you and your family, or work in collaboration with your physician (to augment the care they already provide). Call for an appointment today and let’s work together on a plan for your whole health. Wendy only sees Strada patients who are at least 13 years old.

As a board certified family physician practicing for 17 years she has witnessed many changes in the way health care is delivered.

Wellness means integrating the treatment of the whole person, mind, body and spirit. It also must empower patients to create a state of optimal health.
