Congratulations to Dr. Timothy Bohlender, CCMH's February Provider of the Month.
Dr. Bohlender joined the CCMH Medical Staff two years ago, moving here from Granby, Colo. We are privileged to have him care for our patients in the CCMH Walk-in Clinic as a Board Certified Family Practice physician.
He was attracted to medicine through two brothers and an uncle who are veterinarians. Their influence, along with his interest in biology and science, led him to pursue a career as a physician. He is proud of his philosophy of providing personal care and even made house calls in his practice in Granby.
Dr. Bohlender feels the biggest challenge in healthcare today is the pressure to do more things faster and would advise young practitioners to take time to be quiet and listen to the patient, because they will usually tell you exactly what you need to know.
Family is Dr. Bohlender’s No. 1 priority and he spends many hours with his wife, Shirra and their 6-year-old son, teaching him the small town values he lives by. He surrounds himself with animals (six dogs and four horses), which give him a sense of peace, and he often chooses listening over talking.
Thank you Dr. Bohlender for choosing to join the CCMH family. We appreciate all you do for our community.
