After 22 years of seeing patients with Developmental-Behavioral Pediatric concerns, Dr Annelise Spees will retire October 20, 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.
Dr William D Wilcox is a Board-certified Family Practice physician at Doctors Medical Group who cares for adults and children. He can continue to provide care for your child at our office after I retire. If you choose a new pediatric medical provider, please complete a request form at that new provider's office and they will fax a request to our office. We can send your child's record to them for continuity of care.
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! "
