Catherine “Cat” Salguero, PA-C
I am honored to have the opportunity to work at DOPC and look forward to having more time with you, meeting you where you are with your health and well-being, and having the opportunity to practice medicine in a way that focuses on the whole person. The direct primary care model will allow me to build a strong relationship and to be more present with you. I am excited to serve and be a part of this community.
I grew up in a small town in Western Massachusetts, went to college at the University of New Hampshire, and landed in Colorado after graduation; expecting to play in the mountains and stay for a year. One year has now evolved into 20 years! I did take a brief break from CO and lived in the mountains of Peru for four months as well as the time I spent in Portland, Oregon at OHSU for PA school.
My entire career as a PA has been in family medicine caring for infants to geriatrics and providing prenatal care. I have worked solely in community medicine where about 80% of my patients were monolingual Spanish speakers. In addition to patient care, I have held leadership positions for the last seven years as an Assistant Medical Director and then Medical Director at Clinica, one of the largest and busiest community health clinics.
I live in Northwest Denver with my husband, two daughters, and our dog. We love to ski and play in the mountains any chance we get. I also love to travel, cook, do crossfit, and ride the peloton. I can easily get lost in a good book for hours.
