David Brooks, MD
As a native of Denver, Colorado, I have a special interest in the beautiful outdoors where I’m an avid runner and enjoy watching the Denver Broncos and a good game of football. On a professional level, I strive to ensure that healthcare is patient centered and I take seriously the responsibility to treat the children in our community with excellence. I received my medical degree from the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center and also completed my pediatric residency training in Charlotte, North Carolina where I met my best friend and wife, Dr. Ellen. I also serve Valley View as the current Chief of Staff.
Ellen Brooks, MD
I am originally from Wilmington, Delaware and received my medical degree from the University of Virginia School of Medicine. I completed my pediatric residency training in Charlotte, North Carolina, where I met, dated, married and decided to go into practice together with Dr. David. I truly love all aspects of pediatric medicine but have a special affinity for nursery and newborn care. Aside from keeping busy as a physician, I enjoy family time, running and traveling.
Dan Galka, MD
As a pediatrician, my approach is to put the kids first. I focus on them and develop a connection. I like getting to know my patients and families and it’s fun to run into people on the street or at the store whom I know professionally, personally, or both. I was born and raised in upstate New York and earned my medical degree from the State University of New York (SUNY) and its Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook. I completed my pediatric residency at the Naval Medical Center San Diego. After eight years’ active duty in the Navy as a lieutenant commander and primary care physician, I moved my family to Glenwood Springs from North Carolina. Aside from being a Star Wars nerd, I enjoy family time, cycling, and competing in triathlons in my off time.

Craig Martin, MD
I recently moved to the Roaring Fork Valley from Guam and am a retired U.S. Navy Commander. I received my medical degree from the University of Texas and completed my pediatric residency at naval Hospital Oakland and Oakland Children’s Hospital. I think it is really important to try and really listen to your patients as I always want to do my best and what’s best for the patient and their family. As a side note, I have a real passion for scuba diving, biking and spending time with my grown children.
