David Christopher “Chris” Valencia, DO
I’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.
