Leon T. Que, Jr., MD, FAPA (last name pronounced "KAY") is a physician Board-Certified in Psychiatry by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN). He is also a Fellow of the American Psychiatric Association (FAPA). Dr. Que provides integrated psychotherapy and/or medication management based on the unique needs of his patients. He listens to each patient carefully and with a thoroughness designed to glean the subtle nuances that distinguish each person under his care.
Dr. Que strives for a genuinely collaborative doctor-patient relationship in which the risks, benefits, and alternatives of a given treatment are discussed in plain language. It is important to note that some individuals under Dr. Que's care--after assessing their clinical needs and hearing their personal preferences--do not receive any psychotropic medications and are instead treated exclusively with psychotherapy.
Dr. Que's goal is to provide each individual with a sophisticated degree of understanding to allow them to arrive at their own healthcare decisions in an informed way. Dr. Que views his profession as a calling in life and seeks to provide an outstanding level of service to each and every patient.
Dr. Que is a Phi Beta Kappa graduate of The College of The University of Chicago in Political Science with a focus on International Relations. He then completed medical school training at The University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. He later graduated from Residency at The Henry Phipps Psychiatric Clinic of The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland.
Dr. Que was previously a United States Navy Flight Surgeon and served 4 years of active duty. He was deployed 3 times overseas and was Honorably Discharged at the rank of Lieutenant Commander (LCDR). In his role as a Naval Flight Surgeon, he practiced general medicine aboard an aircraft carrier afloat (316 days), ashore, and abroad. Dr. Que participated in a total of 55 fixed-wing and rotary-wing flights in support of both humanitarian and naval missions. He has travelled to over 20 countries in the Middle East, Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Americas.
Dr. Que has a longstanding history of involvement in organized medicine. Upon recommendation of the APA Membership Committee, the APA Board of Trustees named Dr. Que a Fellow. He is currently Treasurer of the Colorado Psychiatric Society (CPS), which is the local District Branch of the APA. Dr. Que has also sat on the CPS Executive, Ethics, and Legislative/Political Action Committees. Additionally, Dr. Que is a member of the Boulder County Medical Society (BCMS) and has participated on the BCMS Executive Committee.
In keeping with his Johns Hopkins psychiatric training, Dr. Que employs a classical approach to combining psychotherapy and/or medication management in a single clinical venue. Dr. Que's mission remains the same as ever: to provide the very best outpatient psychiatric care possible.
