Mission Statement 


We at Wheat Ridge Internal Medicine are committed to delivering consistent, high-quality, medical care and customer service to our patients, vendors, and each other; service founded on the principles of fiscal responsibility, respect for privacy, and honor of the dignity of every individual. We deliver the quality of healthcare we expect for our own family and friends. We cultivate good health.



Our Practice


Wheat Ridge Internal Medicine's primary care clinicians are among the best in Colorado and provide outstanding comprehensive health care -  including urgent care or preventative medicine to keep you healthy in addition to diagnosis and treatment when you are sick. Besides providing personalized, top quality primary care for adults, we also coordinate any specialty care you may need.

Our Healthcare Philosophy - Care Teams


Our practice is determined to provide you with the best possible health outcomes that we can achieve. To that end, we have created a system of Care Teams. Care Teams are groups of our clinicians, who work collaboratively to provide you with the best care. Our Care Teams blend multidisciplinary skills, focus on several clinician's insights for each patient's problem, rather than just a single clinician. Your care team will work closely with you to ensure you receive exceptional medical care, without exception.


Each of the Care Teams is led by a physician - either Dr. W. Scott. Allan or Dr. Stanton Elzi. The teams are designated as follows:

                                     Dr. W. Scott Allan               Dr. Stanton Elzi

                                    Dr. David Hager                   Dr. S. Michael Archer, MD

                                    Laura Wuchter, NP              Crystal Culbert PA-C 

                                    Melissa Fountain, PA-C       Sara Schmidt, NP

                                    Emily Piala, PA-C                 Sofi Abraham, NP

Moreover, we strongly feel that the best healthcare can be delivered to you when you see the same provider over the course of time. This helps reduce fragmentation of care and thus improves patient safety and quality of care. When you see the same provider, we are able to develop a relationship with you. When we know you as a whole person, we are better able to assess your needs and help develop plans for action. 

PFAC  - Patient Family Advisory Committee

At Wheat Ridge Internal Medicine, we take customer satisfaction and the opinions of our patients very seriously. To that end, we meet quarterly with a group of our patients to learn how we can improve the patient experience at our practice.
