Dr. Rieniets' bio

This content was provided by Dr. Rieniets "Dr. Rieniets is a native Coloradoan who was born and raised in Grand Junction Colorado. Dr. Rieniets attended college at Colorado State University in Fort Collins Colorado where she received bachelor degrees in Human Nutrition and Biology. While obtaining her Nutrition degree she became deeply interested in her coursework in metabolism and began to consider pursuing a career as an Endocrinology physician. In order to meet all requirements for medical college admission she continued studies at CSU after earning her Nutrition degree which led her to obtain a second bachelor's degree in Biology. Toward the end of her undergraduate college career she also pursued entry level medical field occupations to include a short career as a phlebotomist for Bonfils Blood Center and work as an EMT for a contract ambulance service. While completing the medical school application process, she was recruited by Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine, which led to her enrollment at OSU-COM. Around the time of her medical school matriculation she was also recruited into the Army. Under the military's Health Professional Scholarship, she served for 4 years in the Army Reserves as a medical student and an additional 9 years as an active duty Army physician. Dr. Rieniets completed Graduate Medical Education at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. A residency in Internal Medicine was completed in 2007 and a fellowship in Endocrinology was completed in 2009. Her first assignment as an Army Endocrinologist was at William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso Texas, where she served as chief of Endocrinology for several years. She also received various temporary assignments outside of El Paso, to include a deployment to Tikrit Iraq where she worked as a Combat Support Hospital "hospitalist" during late 2009 to early 2010. In 2013 she transitioned to the civilian sector, working for several years as a staff Endocrinologist for Banner Health in Northern Colorado before opening her own Endocrinology practice (West Denver Endocrinology) in Lakewood Colorado.

Dr. Reiniets knew what I had my first visit. This was after me being dismissed by many Drs. Over 4 years time. She deserves a higher rating. Punishing her for an office person's actions is unreasonable. On a positive note, Dr. Reiniets excels in her prifession.

Her staff wants to place several prescriptions for you and doesn't care if you have to pay for it or not! The staff doesn't seem to know what the other is doing!

I have been very pleased with Dr. Rieniets treatment of my condition. Dr. Rieniets has been very easy to talk to and listens well while explaining my options in a logical and practical way. I found out more about my condition on my first visit with her than I did in 2 years with a previous doctor....more

This doctor was fabulous. She was easy to talk to and made me feel so comfortable. She is helping me to explore the possibility of a rare disease I may have, when no other doctor would. Highly reccomend.
