A thriving business as Western Cardiothoracic Association, PC, since 1989…. has added a name to better represent the specialized field that Dr. Brooks is presently providing exemplary care in the community of Grand Junction, the Western Slope, and areas of Utah.
Dr Brooks was the primary referral for heart/vascular surgery, serving the Grand Valley since 1986, for 18yrs...however, his belief in remaining an autonomous practicing physician, and while putting his patients desires of where they would like to be treated, he has continued to serve the folks of Grand Junction by not being "owned" or "employed by" a specific healthcare establishment. Dr Brooks' practice is NOT A FRANCHISE. Dr Brooks remains privately, clinic/office-based on Wellington Ave for the last 5 yrs, co-located with Western Colorado Lung Center. He maintains privileges @ all of the major healthcare centers in Grand Junction, including, St Mary's, Community Hospital, Grand Valley Surgical Center, First Choice Day Surgery Center, along with the option of performing procedures in his office clinic.
If surgical intervention is needed, Dr Brooks, along with his patients wishes and type of procedure necessary, decide where procedures will be performed, (since local political and medical expense landscapes flux continuously) taking into consideration patients' financial needs, insurance coverage, out-of-pocket expenses and efficiency of time.
