Our San Juan Health Partners primary and specialty care clinics are open and seeing patients both in clinic and via telemedicine visits, depending on each patient’s needs. To determine whether you should come in for an in-person visit or continue to use telemedicine services, the best thing to do is call the clinic and discuss your specific needs. Some visits, including any that require immunizations or screenings, will need to be done in person, while others may be able to be conducted via phone call or video visit. Our goal is to meet your essential healthcare needs safely and effectively.

Now accepting new patients. We are pleased to be a part of the Durango area and working with you to provide quality cardiology, urology, and neurosurgery services close to home.


Cardiology 

Dr. Rachel Chaney is accepting new patients at San Juan Health Partners Specialty Services. She has a special interest in non-invasive cardiology and prevention and congenital heart disease. Services she provides include:

  • Treatment and management of heart disease and peripheral vascular disease
  • Graded Exercise Stress Testing
  • Echocardiogram (ECHO)
  • Stress Echocardiogram

Urology 

Dr. Daniel Mannas and Dr. Chris Taylor will provide a full range of personalized urology services and specialized procedures to patients at the clinic.

We offer personalized services including treatment for:

  • Urologic cancers
  • Prostate diseases
  • Kidney stones
  • Male and female incontinence
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Endoscopic and minimally invasive treatment of kidney stones

We offer specialized procedures such as:

  • Laparoscopic surgery of the kidneys
  • Vasectomies
  • Overactive bladder treatment
  • Endourology

Neurosurgery

We now offer Neurosurgery. Dr. Dominic Cannella and Dr. Paul Davis are pleased to offer a full range of neurosurgical care as the only Neurosurgeons providing these specialized services in Southern Colorado. This includes any type of cranial injury or problem involving the head; the complete spectrum of spinal problems including the neck, middle back and low back; as well as peripheral nerve problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome and ulnar nerve problems at the elbow.

​Patients will be seen in the San Juan Health Partners Specialty Services office, and any needed surgery will be performed at San Juan Regional Medical Center in Farmington. Patients will be able to receive post-operative care back in Durango.

​One exciting option for patients is minimally invasive spine surgery with the only minimally invasive spine surgeon in the four corners region. This technique involves a very small incision, which often leads to less time spent in the hospital with less pain and a faster recovery. While not everyone is a candidate for minimally invasive surgery, patients who are experiencing difficulty walking, numbness in their arms or legs, or pain that radiates into the arms or legs may experience immediate relief from surgical management.

Dr. Cannella and Dr. Davis are accepting new patients. Call 970.444.0260 to schedule your appointment.

Patient Testimonial

Video: After a fall at the family's home in Durango, Colorado, Dylan Foreman's situation turned into a life-threatening emergency. Dylan needed a neurosurgeon immediately. "I thought for sure I was headed to Albuquerque, Grand Junction or Denver. I thought I’d be away from my family,” he said with wife Christy at his side. He was taken by ambulance to San Juan Regional Medical Center, home to the region’s only neurosurgeons where they met Dr. Dominic Cannella of San Juan Regional Spine Center. "The level of care was phenomenal", said Christy Foreman."
