DB Pediatrics Resources

After 22 years of seeing patients with Developmental-Behavioral Pediatric concerns, Dr Annelise Spees retired from active patient care October 20th, 2023. She said in a recent letter mailed to current pediatric patients:

"After twenty-two years of seeing children with Doctors Medical Group, I am retiring from practice as of October 20, 2023. Thank you for sharing your family experiences with me. It has been an honor and privilege to participate in the lives of children and families here in Colorado Springs over these years.

If you have been seeing us primarily for Developmental-Behavioral Pediatric issues, consider seeking a specialist associated with Children's Hospital of Colorado. There are also general pediatricians who care for children with special needs in the community. For medication management, there are Psychiatric/Prescribing Nurse Practitioners in the Front Range as well. 

Again, I thank you for your trust over the years with your child's medical care. God bless you and your family! "
