David Christopher “Chris” Valencia, DO

Chris Valencia.JPGI’m Chris Valencia.  I grew up in Redding, a small Northern California city.  I found solace from Redding’s hot summers wakeboarding in the lake, rafting down the river, or hiking in the mountains.  I spent my winters snowboarding on what I now know to be mostly slush and ice (not the billowy powder Colorado enjoys).  I completed medical school here at Rocky Vista University, College of Osteopathic Medicine and I’ve been exploring big cities like Chicago and Los Angeles for further training.  However, I am THRILLED to come back to Colorado to complete my Internal Medicine residency.  During medical school I used to say it felt like home, but I think at this point, I can safely say that Denver is my home.  I am passionate about medicine and about serving people. I can’t tell you how excited I am to become a part of the Sky Ridge Medical Center medical staff, and I look forward to getting to know my patients and sharing my passion for my chosen profession.
