David Palmquist, MD
"After more than 25 years of practicing internal medicine on the Porter Hospital campus, I still find challenges and enjoyment in what I do. The timeless interaction between patient and physician still intrigues me as a physician while providing answers and, hopefully, comfort for the patient."
In an age when technology has become a significant aspect of medicine, the ability to arrive at a diagnosis with a history and physical remains a rewarding art to Dr. David Palmquist. Somewhat different from his IPC/Senior Care colleagues, he continues to practice general internal medicine with adults of all ages. However, since even before joining Senior Care, he says, “I have especially enjoyed caring for the geriatric population. They share remarkable stories and anecdotes from their lives with me. Sometimes I’m left wondering who benefited most from the visit.”
Dr. Palmquist, whose father was the CEO at Swedish Medical Center for 20 years, earned his MD at the University of Colorado Medical School in 1982 and has spent his entire career serving patients in Denver. He is board certified in internal medicine and serves as a Practice Group Leader who mentors and assists his IPC/Senior Care peers.
He spends much of his free time with his daughter and is a bicyclist and skier in his leisure time. An avid reader, Dr. Palmquist enjoys novels, biographies, and even medical journals.
