A Higher Level of Medical Care
Whenever your travels take you to spectacular ski resorts set high in the Colorado Rockies — like Aspen, Vail, Beaver Creek, Breckenridge, and Keystone — there’s something you may want to pack right along with your skis, snowboards, hiking boots, and other gear: the phone number of Alpine Mobile Physicians. That’s because in the event that you or a member of your family or business group experience an illness or injury during your visit, a board-certified physician from Alpine Mobile Physicians will come to you — right to your vacation home or hotel — so you won’t have to travel to the emergency room. They’re on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, to provide urgent/emergency care. And if any x-rays are required, they can expedite the process to eliminate waiting times. The company also serves as a mobile pharmacy, bringing any needed medications right to you.
While the physicians at Alpine Mobile Physicians are experienced at treating a wide variety of injuries or illnesses, since ski resorts are located at such high elevations, they also specialize in the prevention and treatment of altitude sickness. “One out of every four visitors that comes to our ski resorts is affected by altitude sickness,” explains Douglas Mayeda, MD, president and COO of Alpine Mobile Physicians, who is known by his patients as Dr. Doug. “Left untreated, altitude sickness can lead to serious, life-threatening conditions.” But you don’t have to travel to a lower altitude to find relief. As Mayeda says, “Alpine Mobile Physicians’ Research Center is the only facility in the area to offer a state-of-the-art altitude simulation chamber that can accurately simulate conditions at lower elevations and provide a safe medical environment for the patient’s recovery.” The center can replicate conditions from slightly above sea level all the way to 18,000 feet, which also makes it a popular choice for athletes who need to adapt to different environments in order to compete.
It’s nice to know that house calls do still exist…especially at 9,600 feet.
