More/Other Information

Working somewhere where what you do every day makes a difference is the most rewarding part of what Dr. Reitter does. Dr. Reitter absolutely believes what he does at Mt. San Rafael Hospital makes a difference for the community. He feels he could be one of any number of surgeons in a metropolitan area, and would being the 55th surgeon there make a difference to that community? Likely not. In Trinidad, it's pretty black-and-white that delivering healthcare in a professional, courteous, thoughtful manner makes a difference. To this day, Dr. Reitter still gets asked if he comes down from Pueblo and he continues to work to change that community mindset, and is glad to do it!

Dr. Reitter enjoys golfing, recreational shooting, archery, hiking, anything outdoors, cooking, and, of course his family. He has two children in college and one that is in high school.
