Sports Medicine Spotlight on Monument Health Newsletter

Tabeguache Family & Sports Medicine’s two sports medicine doctors, Karen Frye and Fletch Colwell were featured in the Monument Health Newsletter and blog –  Monument Healthline.

Below is an excerpt from their Newsletter.

“PROVIDER SPOTLIGHT:

Dr. Colwell and Dr. Frye work together in family and sports medicine at their current practice, Tabeguache Family and Sports Medicine. We asked them to give us two words that describe each other in their role as physicians. Dr. Colwell told us that Dr. Karen Frye is “patient-centered and attentive.” Dr. Frye described Dr. Fletch Colwell as “patient and compassionate.”

Free Health & Wellness Coaching

Primary Care Partners offers free Health & Wellness Coaching for all of our patients. If you know what you need to do to improve your health, but don’t know how to take the first step in the context of your daily life, then Health & Wellness Coaching can help get you on track. 

Paula Anderson, a certified Health & Wellness Coach, provides coaching services to Primary Care Partners’ patients at no cost. “Often it’s just an issue of defining what matters most to the patient to get them on the right path,” said Anderson.  “Everyone knows diet and exercise is important, but it’s not as simple as just doing it because unidentified stressors can derail the best of plans.” 

“We talk about the patient’s goals and then take the time to discover which small, specific steps can get them where they want to go.” 

If you feel this service would be helpful for you, ask your provider to make a referral. Due to COVID, all coaching visits are by phone at a time most convenient for each patient. Sessions can continue weekly for a month or longer, depending on each patient’s needs.
