Colorado’s Premier Physician-Scientist & Rheumatology Specialist

Studying rheumatology in both France and the United States has given me unrivaled clinical expertise and a highly research-driven approach to my rheumatology practice. With an emphasis on holistic healing, and as a stage IV cancer survivor who benefited from this uniquely blended approach to treatment, I utilize both Western and Eastern healing into my practice to help my patients restore balance and reach full remission.

Changing the Relationship to our (Health) Challenges

Western medicine is rooted in an adversarial approach. The tendency is to think of ourselves as fighting or in a battle. The end-product of this way of thinking is an increase in stress and anxiety that ultimately detracts from our immune response and decreases our ability to recover. Isabelle Amigues, MD, rheumatologist and researcher, explains why the vernacular behind “fighting” diseases can hinder the healing process.

The UnabridgedMD Approach

I am often not the first specialist you see, but I aim to be the last.
If you are seeking answers and relief from a chronic condition affecting your livelihood, I can help. Through patience, trust, and a proactive, holistic approach, we can make you whole again to live the life of vitality and peace you deserve, fully restored.

My approach is simple. The results, significant.


As a cancer survivor, I have experienced the power of blending modern medicine and traditional healing principles. I educate all patients on the importance of the mind + body connection and will empower you to participate in your own healing journey to full restoration. Through a blend of modern medicine and traditional Eastern healing practices, you will learn to listen to your body and utilize learned techniques to tap into your intrinsic ability to heal physically, emotionally, and spiritually.


Direct care allows for more 1:1 time with my patients and a level of accessibility that is unmatched by peers in the field. Appointments can be scheduled within days, and all calls, texts, and emails are answered by me or my trusted team personally within hours. Bypassing insurance allows more time to focus on your healing and ensures a deeper, more personalized level of care.

While we are direct care, you can still use your out-of-network insurance benefits.


Educated by the best rheumatologists in Europe, diagnostic, clinical excellence is at the core of my methodology. With decades of data-driven research and a vast network of medical professionals in varying specialties at my fingertips, I have the expertise and resources to identify your condition at its root, and to outline custom, targeted treatment plans to help you achieve full recovery and remission.

Patient Success Stories


"I have been a patient of Dr. Amigues for over 4 years. I am a very complicated case. In fact I relocated from NJ to CO to be seen by her! Finally I had some answers. She does the testing that other doctors wouldn’t do, leading to an accurate DX. She is not hesitant to prescribe the latest treatments. I finally had a plan of action. It helped me tremendously to control disease symptoms. She’s provided her personal email and was always super responsive. She is a true gem of medicine! I am so thankful for her medical care."
