Andrew Brookens, M.D.


About: Dr. Brookens grew up in the Denver area and tried living East, West and abroad before finally moving back home. He is an avid tennis player and skier, and a fan of great coffee! And “Yo hablo espanol!” from his days in the Peace Corps in South America.

Practice Philosophy: “I consider myself a ‘coach in the corner,’ focused on empowering my patients to reach their health goals. I achieve this through in-clinic visits and active remote and digital communications. I feel humbled by the chance to serve patients at all phases of their kidney disease and hypertension.”
