Brad A. Baldwin, D.O.

Dr. Baldwin was born in New Mexico and raised in North Dakota. He enjoys performing surgery because it's an extension of something he began doing at age 3 - taking things apart. "It wasn't until I was 10 that I began to put things back together and actually fix them!" he says.

Before joining Surgical Associates of Western Colorado, Dr. Baldwin served as Chief of Surgery at Galena Stauss Hospital in Galena, Ill., and Southwest Health Center in Platteville, Wis., and was a staff surgeon at Mercy Medical Center in Dubuque, Iowa.

Dr. Baldwin and his wife Diane, a registered nurse, are involved in The Crisis Pregnancy Center of Grand Junction. In addition to home improvement projects, antique furniture restoration, and auto restoration, he enjoys getting out into the mountains on foot, snowmobile, ATV, and spending time with his two grown daughters and granddaughter.

Andrew J. Morse, D.O.

Dr. Morse moved to Grand Junction and joined Surgical Associates of Western Colorado in 2006. He is especially impressed with the collaborative nature of the Mesa County medical community.

Dr. Morse was born in Portland, Ore., and grew up in San Diego. He and his wife Kelly have four children and are enjoying the abundant outdoor recreational opportunities in western Colorado.
