Your doctors at Green Mountain Partners for Health want to let you know we are still here for all your health care needs. Our clinic remains open, though to help with social distancing, most our interactions are virtual. However, we still can perform vaccines, blood draws, urine testing and even COVID testing if appropriate. Our doctors can even do stitches and glue wounds- just like an urgent care but without the exposure risks. We even have hours on Saturdays! Even with shelter in place directives, it is still okay to go to a doctor’s appointment. If your insurance status changes please note we DO take Medicaid and we have very affordable cash prices. We are still taking new patients.
Current guidelines for testing continue to change. Without a FEVER, COUGH or SHORTNESS OF BREATH, it is unlikely you will qualify for testing at this time. We are happy to have an appointment to discuss any symptoms and provide you and appropriate care plan and letters for return to work. Our likely recommendation will be to stay home for 10 days AND until you have had no fevers for 72 hours (without the aid of medication). Please stay home until you have been assessed.
Accurate and up to date information can be found at the CDC website and the CDPHE website.
Please DO NOT call the on the call physician unless you are having a possible emergency. Concerns for COVID are not an emergency unless you are having emergency symptoms like trouble breathing or fatigue so severe you no longer can walk a short distance or stand up. If you are trying to decide if you should go to the Emergency Room this would be a good time to call - we can often help you avoid the Emergency Room! Please continue to use the emergency on call physician number for urgent issues when you are not sure you need to go to the ER or urgent care.
DO NOT go to the Emergency room for COVID testing. Continue to only use emergency rooms for truly emergent issues like trouble breathing, concerns for heart attacks or strokes, and illness or injury that are life, limb or vision threatening. ERs are likely to be overwhelmed at times due to COVID and this is probably the most likely place for you to get exposed.
Please continue to CONTACT YOUR PHARMACY for MEDICATION REFILLS. We promise this is the quickest way to get what you need- our doctors have access to this system on nights and weekends as most come through electronically.
Dr. Boyd and Dr. Francavilla created a small, independent practice in Lakewood because we believed it was the best way to care for patients.
We pride ourselves in taking medicine back to the basics. We focus on partnering with our patients to provide personalized care, preventing health problems before they start, and being here when you need us.
We believe your appointment time should be your appointment time, that you should have enough time with your physician, and that you should be able to get in for an appointment or reach your doctor when you need one. Our clinic offers online scheduling and tele-health (video) appointments to help you get health care when you need it.
We love taking excellent care of our patients and building relationships. If you live in the Lakewood, Golden, Wheat Ridge, or Denver areas, we would love the opportunity to care for you!
"My passion is keeping people healthy using lifestyle changes like food and exercise, but also medications when they can be helpful. As a mom, I also love taking care of children and their parents.”
"I enjoy working collaboratively with patients to reach their unique health care goals."
"I want to work together and provide education about your health to care for the whole family."
Green Mountain Partners for Health is a full service family medicine practice in Lakewood, Colorado. We can care for the majority of our patient's medical needs in our office. Some of the many medical services we provide on a daily basis:
When Dr. James Boyd took the courageous leap to open his own practice a few years ago, my husband and I decided that we would follow him to his new practice, Green Mountain Partners for Health. The practice’s name perfectly described Dr. Boyd’s vision; knowledgeable, personalized one-on-one care for patients. Patients that count on their doctor to guide them through their medical care needs and assist in navigating our health care system’s quagmire. Besides being an excellent internist, Dr. Boyd is one of the most knowledgeable doctors when it comes to prescription medications. He was ahead of the opioid crisis, his knowledge of how prescription drugs interact with each other…what they will or won’t do. The man knows his stuff.
As Dr. Boyd’s practice grew, he carefully recruited practitioners whose specialty would compliment his vision, “partners for health.” When Dr. Francavilla joined Dr. Boyd, she not only offered excellent care, but added medical supervised weight management to the practice. I, personally, feel at ease scheduling with either Dr. Boyd or Dr. Francavilla because both my doctors share the common goal of providing excellent patient care in a caring environment.
Straight, honest, medical guidance and care from our physicians. That is what Green Mountain Partners for Health means, a medical practice where patients are not a number. When my husband and I make an appointment, we know that our doctor and their staff will be focused on our care and wellbeing. Patients come first and foremost at Green Mountain Partners for Health.
I highly recommend Green Mountain Partners. I feel lucky to have found this practice. Dr. Francavilla has been wonderful to work with. She has helped me improve my personal health with a difficult diagnosis of sleep apnea among other things. She has been a strong advocate for my personal health and given me numerous referrals. She really listens and cares about my situation.
Recently I had to see Dr. Saul for pneumonia. She followed up with incredible care, numerous phone calls and working with a respiratory therapist. This is way beyond what I've ever experienced previously with any other doctors. I've never had doctors go so far to make sure that things were resolved properly. The office staff is always professional and courteous.
I can't say enough good things about both of these fantastic doctors and they both have my gratitude for their treatment. Thank you.
I have never been more comfortable with a doctor or their staff as I am with Dr. Francavilla and Green Mountain Partners for Health. Dr. Francavilla is kind, considerate, and always takes the time to really listen to what my concerns are. I have been able to talk to her about all my medical issues, even specialized ones, and she does everything in her power to help. I love that she not only listens to what I am concerned about, but gives me the choice about how I want to be treated.
A lot of anxiety I have had surrounding doctors was taken care of simply by knowing that I have found a doctor who loves what she does and cares about her patients. The relationship she has with patients is built on the fact that one can tell she is doing what she loves, caring for others.
