Claire Diamant-Yefet, FNP-BC, MSN, RN, BSN
Claire Diamant-Yefet, owner and nurse practitioner at Health Now, went to college at the University of Colorado where she received a BA in psychology with the plan of pursuing her masters in counseling but then decided she wanted to be able to treat the whole body and went on to get her Bachelor's Degree in Nursing at Denver College of Nursing.
She started her career as a nurse after moving to Florida for 2 years to be closer to the ocean which she loves! In Florida, she was a pediatric oncology nurse.

Her next contract took her to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, back to her original stomping ground and where she loved to be. “Patients with cancer have a major obstacle and tremendously hard life change put in front of them, they learn to truly appreciate life and you can personally feel that from their energy, its very sad and hard but truly a special field to have grown in. “I have stayed in touch with many of my patients to this day and I see them when I go back to visit with my husband and 18 month old daughter, my husband is from New York!” While working as a nurse for 5 years, Claire received her masters of science degree at Simmons College in Boston where she became a family nurse practitioner, again wanting to be able to treat ailments from head to toe.

Donald Michael “Mike" Miller, is a nurse practitioner that brings nearly 3 decades of service to others to his role as nurse practitioner.

Since receiving his MSN in 2004, he has had rich experiences that shape his approach to the provision of health care, as well as his area of expertise. Mike pioneered a role as a hospital-based NP at Sky Ridge Medical Center, working as the Spine Practitioner for the renowned spine program. He was instrumental in that program’s early growth. After leaving Sky Ridge Medical center he worked in an orthopedics practice that enabled him to develop expertise in orthopedic issues and allowed him to learn, as well as use procedures and techniques for his primary care patients. He later joined a neurosurgery practice where he specialized in spine issues. To this day he cites spine care as his special area of expertise. He has since worked in urgent care and is experienced in acute care procedures. Due to his urgent care experience, Mike provided treatment modalities not usually provided in primary care offices.

Matt Silvaggio, MSPT, CFMT, CSCS
You know that saying, “you are what you eat”? In physical therapy it is, “you are how you move”. I specialize in helping people understand why they are in pain, why their body is not moving with ease, and providing solutions for how they can return to what they love doing without pain. My approach to patient care involves a balance of what people want but also what they need. This commences with a proper and thorough evaluation of you as a whole including your goals, needs, complaints and past history. Treatment entails tactful exercise selection to improve the movements and strengths necessary for you to heal and become a stronger you. It will also entail manual therapy including soft tissue and joint manipulation, dry needling, Graston technique, and cupping to name a few. The final ingredient to success is patient education. Research shows that patients achieve their best outcomes when they are intricately engaged in their own healing process.
I love fitness and the arts of movement. A testament to this includes my certification to teach yoga as well as my certification as a strength and conditioning specialist. I have been licensed as a physical therapist since 2003, graduating from Nazareth College of Rochester, NY. I am passionate about helping people and I am very committed to doing so. When I am not working, I am outdoors with my wife and son enjoying the Colorado lifestyle.
