Biography

I moved to Pueblo thirty-six years ago after finishing Medical School in Virginia. Prior to that, I spent my growing up years in Idaho, Puerto Rico, and Minnesota. Since I have spent the majority of my life here in Pueblo and my wife is from Pueblo, I proudly consider myself a Pueblo native.

I completed my Residency training through the Southern Colorado Family Medicine Program here in Pueblo. I spent twenty years in private practice on the North side of town, two years working for the Department of Justice, 13 years working at Parkview as the VP of Medical Affairs, and as of August 2020 began working for Parkview Medical Group Family Practice.  My Family Practice office is located at 1600 N. Grand Avenue, Ste 230 in Pueblo.

In my nonworking time, I have loved working with the regional chapter of the American Red Cross and the Southeastern AHEC.

Pueblo has been a great place for me to work, raise my family, develop a solid network of friends, and meet many wonderful people as their primary care physician.

Nothing. The lack of some medical records were issues beyond their control. However,I was assured they would pursue records. Excellent and professional staff.

I have no clue, everything was great!

Nothing, all was excellent.

I was very satisfied with my visit. The only improvement would be to have better parking options for the medical building, but I know that you are limited by space.
April 21, 2021
Can't think of anything.

It was wonderful to have the CARE and ATTENTION paid to my medical concerns and needs. I was treated like a real person and not just another number, or body occupying space. Staff I encountered were warm, patient and a pleasure to met and interact with during my visit. Thank you Dr. Nafziger for hiring such kind, friendly and caring staff.

I was very, very pleased with my physical. The doctor listened, was caring, was compassionate, and was just absolutely five-star all the way. I could not recommend him enough.

Linda and Dr. Nafziger are both amazing. The front staff is super friendly, and very nice as well, but I had issues getting in as a new patient, because they couldn't scan the paperwork to me, and I had to physically go in, and then I asked for a call back when I got approved, and never did, so I had to call back a couple times to get my appointment.

Everything ok.

Knowing how to use computer to check medical history. Problem in communicating several weeks ago in getting my medication. Drug store sent request by fax for two different drugs, two different times. At one point I had to contact insurance to see why they refused which they requested something from Doctor by fax and was ignored. Numerous calls were made to doctor office and insurance company before I received any results. Second incident drug store sent fax to reissue diabetes medicine once again I had to contact doctor office before getting prescription.

Don't see anything needs improved the staff and the doctor were extremely friendly nice and respectful
January 28, 2021
Appt scheduled for 945, I arrived at approximately 930ish. I didn't get called back until 1030. An update from front office would've been appreciated.
January 26, 2021
If we could get appointments to less than two weeks out I'd be in heaven. Let me just say though it was nice to finally be taken seriously about my health concerns and treated like a human.
January 19, 2021
Nothing. I had to swing into PMG for a post Covid checkup. The staff was very inviting and welcoming. They all did a great job making sure I understood my results and answered any questions I had.
January 14, 2021
Made you feel welcome and right at home
January 14, 2021

November 24, 2020
I'm extremely happy and confident with the care for my health that the staff provides. At this time I've no suggestions for areas that need improvement.
November 23, 2020
Dr. Nafziger and his staff were outstanding. I give them a score of 100!!
November 12, 2020
This was my first visit with this physician. The doctor and his staff went above and beyond making me fee comfortable and confident in their abilities.
November 11, 2020
There still seems to be a gap in my records from my old primary care to my new one. Apparently the records are not readily accessible and contain valuable important information about past treatments. This is not Dr Nafziger fault but I believe a breakdown in Parkviews system? Thank you
November 03, 2020
I don't think there's anything you could have done any better. It was everything was done just exactly right. The receptionist was wonderful kind patient. The nurse his his doctor's nurse went across the hall to get something for me and she didn't have to do that. She made an extra trip. She was wonderful. He took more time than any doctors take with me in a long time and really answered all my questions and I really felt like he listened to me and we communicated very well, so I give the whole experience a 10. It was very good. Thank you.

Nothing,everything was great with my visit!
October 22, 2020
It was great experience. Don't change a thing!
October 20, 2020
They were lovely. Don't know that they could have improved.
October 15, 2020
My mom has been very frustrated that doctors seem to avoid contact with patients rather they refer patients with issues to PA's, nurses or the person who answers the phone in some cases, very questionable quality of care. Dr. Nafzinger was absolutely wonderful and mom and I were very impressed with his total approach to our initial meeting.
