Friday, December 1, Richard "Dr. Rick" Amesquita, DO, spoke with a few people at a "Meet and Greet the Doctor" at the Greenhorn Valley Library. His practice, "Patient Centered Practices" has two offices, one in Westcliffe and one in Beulah. He also sees patients at their homes or offices, and will consult via phone, text, or Skype, depending on the patient's needs and circumstances.

When he was a junior in high school the school counselor asked Rick what he wanted to be, and he said a doctor. She laughed. She told him based on his grades, perhaps he should consider a blue-collar job. His grades went from mediocre to excellent for the remainder of his time in high school.

A few years out of high school, with a wife and unable to afford college, he enlisted in the Air Force. He completed the basic EMT course and went on to become on of only five paramedics in the Air Force at the time. He became accustomed to being the only medical person available, but at the same time having other personnel available to handle duties he was unable to perform.
