Our Dedicated Team of Healthcare Professionals

Marilyn Dippold, FNP


As a nationally board certified health care provider and sole owner of the practice, my goal is to provide the highest quality medical care possible to our “family” of patients. My training and education at Georgetown University School of Medicine focused on a strong health care partnership … we are in this together! In addition, I have over 30 years of health care experience, to include serving overseas at the U.S. Army Landstuhl Regional Medical Center during Desert Storm, and on the staff of numerous leading-edge hospitals and cardiac/intensive care units throughout the United States as I traveled in support of my husband’s 24 year military career in the United States Air Force.

In 2002, my husband and I moved to and fell in love with the people and majesty of Colorado; it is now our permanent home.

Rhiannon Sunday, ANP


 I am a Colorado native, born and raised in Colorado Springs. I completed my Bachelor’s in Nursing at the University of Northern Colorado. In 2001 I returned to Colorado Springs to begin my nursing career. Although I worked on a medical-renal floor, my primary focus was the Intensive Care Unit. I completed my Master’s in Nursing and received my Adult-Gerontology Nurse Practitioner degree from the University of Colorado in 2014. 

My husband and I have two very busy boys. Our oldest loves soccer and hunting, while our youngest loves soccer and basketball. We all enjoy spending time on the Western Slope of Colorado with our extended family, along with hiking and playing sports together.

Compassionate Support Staff


We take great pride in our outstanding support staff and their many years of consistently providing compassionate high quality medical care to our "family" of patients. 

Healthcare Services

Treat acute and chronic medical issues


Acute conditions are severe and sudden in onset. This could describe anything from a broken bone to an asthma attack. A chronic condition, by contrast is a long-developing syndrome. 

Interpret lab and radiological studies


A laboratory or radiology study is a procedure in which a sample of blood, urine, other bodily fluid, tissue or imaging is examined to get information about a person’s health.

Prescribe and manage medications


Safe and effective prescription management is necessary to avoid dangerous side effects as the result of medications interacting or because you mistakenly take the wrong drug or dose.

Patient Education


Provide monthly tailored patient education classes on important and current medical and behavioral health issues.

Consult and refer to specialists


Medical specialists are doctors who have completed advanced education and clinical training in a specific area of medicine, such as a cardiologist, endocrinologist, gastroenterologist, urologist, etc.

Provide tailored health counseling


Provide advice and guidance to collaboratively develop a treatment plan, and manage interpersonal relationships between the patient, family, friends, significant others and health care providers.
