Gastroenterologist joins Colorado Health Medical Group

Colorado Health Medical Group welcomes gastroenterologist Eric Eliason to northern Colorado.

Dr. Eric Eliason

Dr. Eliason diagnoses and treats all gastrointestinal conditions but has a particular interest in inflammatory bowel disease, colon cancer screenings and celiac disease. Dr. Eliason’s care philosophy is to treat the whole person versus specific disease processes and his experiences have helped him empathize with his patients. 

"I have had my own personal patient experiences similar to what my patients go through,” said Dr. Eliason. “I believe it has helped me to fully understand the patient’s perspective to be empathetic and compassionate to his or her situation. I take care of my patients as if they are family to provide the highest quality of care.”

Dr. Eliason joins a team of gastroenterologists, Dr. Peter Witt, Dr. Michael Nosler and Dr. Peter Perakos, who serve patients throughout northern Colorado. Dr. Eliason will see patients in Greeley on Mondays, Fort Collins on Tuesdays and Fridays, Loveland on Wednesdays and Cheyenne on Thursdays. He began seeing patients July 10 at Medical Center at Centerra, North Medical Office Building, 2500 Rocky Mountain Ave., Loveland.

Dr. Eliason is board-certified in internal medicine and completed his fellowship training in gastroenterology at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. Prior to his specialty training at the University of Iowa, he graduated from medical school at Midwestern University-Arizona College of Osteopathic Medicine.
