Izaak Fitzgerald, PA-C
I’m originally from Minnesota and earned my bachelor of science degree in Biology from the University of Kentucky. I then moved on to Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin where I earned my Masters of Physician Assistant Studies. My family resides in Glenwood Springs and when I’m not caring for patients, I enjoy playing hockey in the adult league and I’m also a member of the Defiance Rugby Football Club of Glenwood Springs. I truly love the outdoors and sports including hockey, rugby, mountain biking, snowboarding, hiking, camping, crossfit and anything I can get my hands on.

Joshua Peters, PA-C
I was born and raised in central Pennsylvania and earned my Masters Degree at Marywood University in Scranton, PA in Physician Assistant studies. I moved to Connecticut after school to start my career as a Physician Assistant in Orthopedics and was there for 4 years. I moved to Glenwood and started working with Dr. George in October 2014. When not caring for patients I enjoy hiking, fishing, skiing, kayaking, golfing, and enjoying this beautiful place with my dog. I am blessed to live and work in such a great place and community, and look forward to taking care of you!

Michael Begg, PA-C
I was born and raised in Meeker, Colorado. After pursuing an undergraduate degree in education and athletic training, I went on to complete a master’s degree in sports medicine. After working for the World League of American Football, I received my degree in physician assistant studies and found my way back to my home state of Colorado. In addition to my work as a physician assistant, I am also a nationwide speaker for continuing medical education, personal growth and professional development. I enjoy the team approach to care at the Glenwood Orthopaedic Center and have a passion for patient education, involved our patients in all aspects of their treatment plan. My goal is to make sure the trust our patients put in us is not taken for granted. In addition to spending time with my family, I also enjoy skiing and hiking.
