Dr. Bublitz retirement

After forty four years of practice, Dr. Bublitz is retiring from the practice of pediatric medicine!  The following is a letter she has written for all of her patients:
 
To my Patients and their Families,
 
As of September 30th of this year I will be retiring from my practice at Littleton Pediatric Medical Center.  I do this with a great degree of sadness, but also a deep sense of satisfaction for having been so fortunate as to practice my beloved specialty for so many years.
 
To know so many of you on such an intimate basis - to be part of your life - and watch so many of you grow from the tiniest of newborns to thriving adults is an experience I will always cherish in my heart.
 
As I hang up my stethoscope I do want to thank all the people I have known on this incredible journey for being such an important part of my life.
 
The doctors at Littleton Pediatrics will gladly continue to care for my families.  In addition, they have hired Dr. Stacy J Ostapko, who will be joining the group full time on October 1, 2018. She will be a good fit for many of my patients.  Thank you again for the opportunity to watch your family grow.
 
Sincerely, 
 
Deborah K. Bublitz, M.D., FAAP

Flu Shots

We now are administering the preservative-free injectable flu vaccine for those eligible patients ages 6 months and older for the 2018-2019 flu season at both our Highlands Ranch and Ken Caryl offices.  In addition, the flu mist vaccine has been approved by the American College of Immunization Practices for the 2018-2019 season.  However, the American Academy of Pediatrics is recommending the injectable flu vaccine and for physicians to administer the flu mist only as a last resort for those patients two years of age and older who qualify and who absolutely refuse the injectable flu vaccine-see the following link for all of the information (http://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/early/2018/08/30/peds.2018-2367).  We now have the flu mist vaccine in stock.

Welcome Stacy Ostapko, MD

Littleton Pediatric Medical Center is excited to announce the addition of Stacy Ostapko, M.D. to our group this fall.  Dr. Ostapko is a native of New York.  She attended SUNY Upstate Medical University for her MD degree.  She  completed her pediatric internship and residency at Eastern Virginia Medical School Children's Hospital in Norfolk, Virginia.  She has been in private pediatric practice in the south suburbs of Denver for over three years.  Dr. Ostapko, her husband, and two children love all that the Colorado outdoors has to offer!

Welcome Nicole Stutzman, MD

Littleton Pediatric Medical Center is excited to announce the addition of Nicole Stutzman, M.D. to our group this summer upon the retirement of Richard Rosenbaum, M.D. from our group.  Dr. Stutzman is a native of Colorado.  She attended the University of Colorado for medical school.  She is currently completing her pediatric residency with a concentration in primary care in Philadelphia at St. Christopher's Hospital.  Dr. Stutzman and her husband, who is also a Colorado native, are excited to return to Colorado!

Words cannot convey the appreciation that Littleton Pediatrics and it's patients have for Dr. Rosenbaum!  He has been a loyal member of our practice since 1991!  We wish him the best in his future endeavors!
