Welcome to our practice
Susie Damon is a board-certified pediatrician serving the south Denver metro area for the past 25 years enjoying the privilege of caring for a multitude of kids and families over her career. She is most excited to now be caring for children using the Direct Primary Care model! Getting to know patients and their families over time, spending the time to listen to each family member’s concerns, and providing counseling to help families survive the newborn, toddler, and teen years, has always been Dr. Susie’s forte. What is missing from traditional medical practices is the time necessary to do these things well. Direct Primary cuts out the middleman, allowing patients to have as much time as they need with their provider.
At Platypus Pediatrics, we provide comprehensive pediatric care, including well child visits, chronic disease management, sick care, urgent care, and most minor procedures, including laceration repair and wart treatment. All of this, for a low monthly fee. We also offer a wide variety of generic medications, at-cost labs, and at-cost x-rays, when needed. We even help to navigate insurance and place referrals when specialty care or hospitalization is necessary.
Welcome to a new and better way to receive the pediatric care you deserve!
Direct Primary Care
Our philosophy centers around providing a special and unique relationship between doctor and patient.
- Direct primary care, or DPC for short, is a simple idea that solves a very complex problem.
- DPC is very different from traditional Fee-For-Service billing. Instead of billing insurance inflated rates for every service provided and then billing the patient for the balance, all in-office services are provided for a low monthly membership fee.
- DPC is NOT concierge medicine. Although similar, DPC provides full service for an affordable monthly fee. And DPC practices do NOT bill insurance companies. We also provide wholesale medications, at-cost labs, and at-cost imaging services.
We love Dr. Susie!
We love Dr. Susie and would follow her anywhere!
