After practicing for 20 plus years, connecting with patients and making a difference to them is still my greatest reward and privilege.
Diane Ellis, M.D.
After growing up within the small radius of Omaha, Nebraska with two sisters and wonderful parents, I was ready to see the world! This set the stage for a residency in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains at the University of Virginia.
Being an anesthesiologist had appealed to me while I was in medical school at UNMC because I loved every rotation I did and an anesthesia practice allows a lot of daily variety within the specialties of anesthesia.
After residency, we decided we needed to live near mountains so my husband and I moved to Colorado and have never left.
We have two rapidly growing daughters that we are trying to expose to a life of adventure and service of others. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, biking, skiing, cooking, reading, and, of course, traveling whenever I can get the opportunity to explore new places and cultures.
