Ellie Titarenko


In this clinic I specialize in pain and addiction medicine.

For the last seven years I worked at University of Colorado Hospital at the Hematology/Oncology/BMT division where I treated patients’ with chronic pain. I completed an internship at CU pain and spine division and was managing chronic pain in patients living with sickle cell disease. In order to stay up to day in all aspects of family medicine, I share my time between this clinic and a family practice clinic in Aurora, CO.

Personally I strongly believe that my mission is not to heal but to empower my patients to heal themselves.

My professional interests include practicing holistic medicine, improving patients’ quality of life by effective communication, writing individualized and personalized treatment plans for chronic pain, and substance use disorder through up-to-date evidence based protocols and conservative methods. I believe in incorporating patients’ emotional, physical, spiritual, and cultural beliefs into treatment for a productive outcome.

I obtained my bachelor of science degree at Grand View University in Des Moines, IA; my Master of Medical Science from Graceland University in Independence, MO.

I can fluently speak English, Ukrainian, Russian and Polish languages. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with friends and my husband and two children. I also enjoy reading, hiking, watching a good Broadway Musical and traveling.
