Colorado Columbine June 2012
The Denver Naturopathic Clinic opened in early Spring of 1992 on Madison Street in the Cherry Creek neighborhood. We moved in 1997 to our present location on the banks of the Highline Canal, a few minutes drive east of our original office on Leetsdale Boulevard. Technically we are actually on Parker Road; Leetsdale changes its name to Parker a block west of our office. Most people think it is still Leetsdale though. We, and many of our patients, still refer to this as the 'new' office.
Sliding glass doors open from our offices onto a deck overlooking the canal. Though close to downtown, we have flowing water, ducks, and other wildlife close at hand.
The office is located in the Creekside Office Park, on the south side of Parker Road (technically speaking: most drivers still think they are on Leetsdale Boulevard) where it joins Mississippi Rd. We are in building 1181, Suite 101. This is the building furthest West (closest to the mountains) in the complex. It is directly across the street from the 7-11 gas station.
Our office has been graced by the presence of a number of amazing receptionists over the years.

Our current receptionist, Megan Chmelik, is a part time student at Metro State University, working to complete her pre-med requirements in order to attend naturopathic college. Our former receptionist, Erin Tausend, has moved to Seattle with her husband and baby Luke to attend Bastyr University in the fall.
Kelsey Asplin, the receptionist before Erin, graduated from Metro in 2011 and will soon complete her naturopathic training at Bastyr University in Seattle. These three are following in the footsteps of four of our prior receptionists who, after serving their time with us, have went on to attend naturopathic school and are now practicing naturopathic doctors.
We always close the office on Wednesdays, or at least to pretend to, in order to find time to catch up. The actual truth is that Wednesdays have been Dr. Schor's 'ski day' since 1992.
