Family Medicine

About Steven D. Nafziger

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.
