Joseph W. Prows, M.D.

Dr. Joseph Prows is a North American mutt, having traveled a circuitous path to Fort Collins involving Alaska, Louisiana, California, Oregon, Massachusetts, and Texas. He graduated from Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans as a member of the “Katrina Class” of 2009 with an MD and a Master’s in Public Health specializing in Epidemiology. In 2012 he graduated from the Alaska Family Medicine Residency Program and subsequently practiced at Anchorage Neighborhood Health Center with an esteemed group of passionate colleagues. His training emphasized full-spectrum care of complex patients in rural and underserved settings.

Dr. Prows works to embody a thoughtful, compassionate, and evidence-based approach to medicine. He emphasizes patient autonomy in medical decision-making, following unhurried discussion of all findings, impressions, options, uncertainties, costs, risks, and benefits. His practice is open to all patients of all ages with any concerns and medical conditions: it includes family care, pediatrics, prenatal/obstetric care, women’s health, dermatology, preventive medicine, and men’s health.

He loves stories and conversation, community-building, lively debate, and an active outdoor lifestyle. Both he and his 3-year-old son enjoy rock climbing, loud music, and electronic (preferably flying) gadgetry. His wife is an Assistant Professor of Art History at CSU. His infant daughter likes milk, sleep, and countless future adventures.
