About Shen Nagel MD

Dr. Shen Nagel has lived in Denver since starting his Pediatric Residency training at Children’s Hospital University of Colorado in 1996. He has been a general pediatrician since 2001 and is also a Clinical Professor of Pediatrics at the University of Colorado. Prior to moving here, and after growing up on the East coast, he spent nine years in California during his undergraduate years at Stanford and medical school at UC-San Diego.

He is now quite attached to the Denver area, as it suits his love of the outdoors. He enjoys a multitude of activities, including skiing and snowboarding, hiking, snowshoeing, camping, SCUBA diving, biking, swimming and an occasional triathlon (unfortunately a bum knee forced him to give up basketball). His wife is also a pediatrician, and they have two teenage children who keep him on his toes. He has two dogs that enjoy accompanying him on his outdoor treks. When stuck inside, a good book, cooking, listening to music, or doing his internet radio show will often occupy his time. He loves Pediatrics and getting to watch children grow up and families evolve. His goal as a pediatrician is to make raising children as enjoyable and stress-free as possible.
