Meet Our Team

Neurologist

Lauren Middleton, D.O.

Integrative Neurology Consultant

  • Undergraduate: Baylor University in Waco, TX- Bachelor of Science in Neuroscience
  • Medical School: Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine in Erie, PA- Doctor of Osteopathy
  • Neurology Residency: University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Erie, PA
  • Fellowship: Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine, La Jolla, CA
  • Practicing for several years in Northern Denver and Boulder, CO at local hospitals

Dr. Middleton’s osteopathic training inspires her to focus on prevention of disease. She was drawn to neurology, and realized after practicing for several years in the North Denver/Boulder area that her patients desired a more holistic approach. She took on a fellowship in Integrative Medicine to this end. She enjoyed years of local practice in the Denver/Boulder area, but felt many medical practices have prioritized profits, margins, and quantity over quality patient care. 

It was from this context that MIND Colorado was created- the Multidisciplinary Institute of Neurological Disorders. She provides quality care by listening and respecting autonomy. She believes medicine could be focused toward prevention, healing, education- the goal of which is to restore wellness with a focus on lifestyle changes. All initial consultations are scheduled with her. 

In her spare time, she enjoys spending time with her husband and kids, hiking, and biking. She has a passion for cooking and baking great food, and suspects this is because she was raised by strong Southern women who knew how to make a mean Pound Cake.  She enjoys trips to the beach and loves chocolate. 

Internist

Christopher Hoang, D.O., MS. MEd. Ed.

Integrative Internal Medicine Consultant

  • Undergraduate: Duquesne University, Pittsburgh, PA- Bachelor of Arts in Computer Sciences, Minor in English Literature
  • Medical School: Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, Erie, PA- Doctor of Osteopathy
  • Residency: Millcreek Community Hospital in Erie, PA
  • Masters of Medical Education: Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, Erie, PA
  • Fellowship: Academy of Integrative Health and Medicine, La Jolla, CA
  • Experience: Practicing in Denver, CO

Dr. Hoang is an osteopathically trained internal medicine physician. He saw patterns in the diseases he commonly treats; many of the most common diagnoses are “lifestyle diseases,” such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, smoking, heart disease, and more. He sought a more integrative approach to these common diseases, and feels that many of these diseases are preventable.

He functions as a General Integrative Medicine consultant for the lifestyle conditions seen together with neurological diseases. For example, if you’ve suffered a stroke, he will address the underlying “root causes” of high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol- from an Integrative perspective. You will still need a Primary Care Doctor to be seen by him, as he is complementary to their care, rather than a replacement.

When away from work, he values time with his family and friends. He takes advantage of all that Colorado has to offer; he avidly mountain bikes in the summer and snowboards in the winter. He enjoys relaxing with a good book and a locally brewed microbrew.
