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.
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.

Dr. Palmquist specializes in geriatric medicine & general internal medicine with adults of all ages.
Kelly married her high school sweetheart and has two sons, two beautiful daughters-in-law and five fabulous grandchildren. In her spare time, she loves spending time with the grandkids, spending time with her husband at their cabin and most Octobers she can be found in Albuquerque, New Mexico with friends participating in the Albuquerque International Balloon Fest.
If you look her up, you will find Kelly doesn’t appear anywhere as her legal name. She was the last of 5 kids born to Scotch Irish parents. Her Dad wanted to name her Kelly but her Mom didn’t feel that was a ‘proper’ young ladies name. So she was named Colleen Anne and called Kelly from day one.

Dr. Flanigan (a twin) with his wife Barbara (married for more than 40 years, also a twin, and maiden name Flanigan) had always planned to practice in the Philadelphia area, but fell in love with Colorado and never left. He had a hospital cardiology practice at St. Joseph and Presbyterian St. Luke’s hospitals until he joined HealthMark in 2012, which he says has been the best decision he has ever made.
He has 4 children and 10 grandchildren and all live within 10 minutes of him. Dr. Flanigan has had a long career in the sport of rowing, and was on the US national team competing in the World Championships, Pan-American games, and pre-Olympic Games, where he was silver medalist. While on the Olympic team, he was accepted to medical school and the Dean of the school would not permit a deferment. The team went on to win the gold medal in Tokyo that year while Dr. Flanigan was in anatomy class. Since then, he has pursued competitive Masters rowing, and has won 25 World Championships, 21 US Championships, and is still competing. He is very proud of his physician daughter, Kate, Medical Director of the Department of Interior, and co-author of Longevity Made Simple a Denver best seller (2007), which is a testament to his avid interest in preventive cardiology.
