"The practice of medicine is an art, not a trade; a calling, not a business; a calling in which your heart will be exercised equally with your head." - William Osler
Dr. Ricafort moved to Colorado for the same reason that many others did before him and many will after him: to be in awe of, inspired by, and renewed by the Great Outdoors. He spends his free time hiking with his dog Bailey, rock climbing, camping, running, swimming, road biking, and competing in triathlons.
