In early 2002, Colorado West Ophthalmology moved to their new clinical facility that is located just east of the Montrose Pavilion. The doctors, staff, and their patients are enjoying the modern clinic. In addition to the spacious reception and administrative area, there is a large comfortable patient waiting area, ten fully-equipped exam rooms, a suite for minor surgery and plenty of space for new diagnostic and therapeutic modalities. Colorado West Ophthalmology also maintains a fully staffed clinic in Delta, across the street from Delta Hospital, which is open 5 days a week. Both clinics have state of the art diagnostic equipment, including an in office laser, an Optical Coherence Tomography Scanner, digital photography, and electronic medical records to facilitate accurate, reliable, and safe patient records.
