James R. Regan, MD, FACP

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My patients are busy with many responsibilities, but also wish to remain fit and energized. As your private physician, my goal is to partner with you to create a personalized healthcare plan to effectively treat your current health problems and prevent new ones. As a clinical professor at the University of Colorado, I am always challenged to make diagnoses and I embrace my teaching responsibilities. After many years in private practice my greatest passion is promoting prevention and wellness. When we succeed in prevention, we will truly enjoy something special and lasting.

An effective physician has an interest and skill in listening, as well as time to really understand what their patient’s hopes, capacities and dreams are. As an MDVIP-affiliated primary care physician, I have more time to develop close relationships with my patients and carefully review records and perform comprehensive exams. My primary care practice, located in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, similar to a concierge medical practice, provides the level of care that can help make a happy, healthy future your reality.
