Holistic & Integrative Rheumatological Care | UnabridgedMD

Hope Driven By Science

UnabridgedMD Care Means... 

Direct Access to Your Rheumatologist
Dedicated to Your Remission. Guaranteed.
Personalized to You & Your Condition.

Disenchanted by the insurance-controlled operations of the United States healthcare system and tired of the inaccessibility to my patients, I launched my own direct care practice for rheumatology, UnabridgedMD.


Founded in the spirit of transparency and trust, I built my practice as a center for hope and reprieve through rheumatology. With my direct care practice model, my patients benefit from a deeper connection with and a level of accessibility and service that is unmatched by competitors.


UnabridgedMD allows me to build stronger connections with my patients to study and treat their conditions on a deeper level to provide the unwavering treatment and care they need, physically, mentally, and emotionally. 


My primary practice is based in Denver, Colorado, but I can treat patients nationally through telehealth.

Finally, a Practice Dedicated to the Remission and Full Health of the Patient.

Through partnership and collaboration, UnabridgedMD fosters a deeper sense of trust and transparency as we guide our patients through the healing and restoration of physical, mental, and spiritual wellness with their rheumatological conditions.


With a clinically based and research-focused medical background, we employ a blended approach utilizing the best in data-driven Western medicine and traditional Eastern healing that empowers our patients to understand the mind + body connection and to engage their intrinsic ability to heal so they can achieve a life of vitality, balance, and transformation in full remission.

Cancer Journey


How Cancer Changed My Approach to Medicine

Dr Isabelle Amigues MD - Rheumatology

I believe that the best way to heal is to see our diseases as a learning opportunity.

At 40, I was diagnosed with stage IV breast cancer.

As an expertly-trained clinician and physician-scientist, I never paid attention to eastern healing principles until my own experience during my cancer treatment.

My own experience forced me to go deeper.

Eastern healing principles supplemented my western medicine throughout my treatment, allowing me to take control of my own healing in ways that I never thought possible. Finding psychological and emotional healing helped my body recover its natural balance, and I have been utilizing these principles in my practice ever since. My patients have responded extremely well to a blended treatment that unites the best of both western and modern healing.


From a scientific perspective, instead of activating the adrenergic system (flight or fight) to “fight the disease,” taking a calm approach of engaging in a conversation with the body is much more therapeutic and healing. This is how I empower my patients during treatment.

I am a believer in the power of meditation, visualization, energy healing and love. This approach healed me and continues to help my patients whom I am committed to helping on every level, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Isabelle Amigues, MD, MS, RhMSUS

I bring unmatched service and rheumatology care to the Denver community with a commitment to clinical excellence, vast research and analysis, and years of experience studying, teaching, and practicing rheumatology. My extensive education spans years of studying under the best rheumatologists in Paris, France along with training at Mount Sinai and Columbia University in New York City. Through these experiences, I have obtained comprehensive training that challenged me to go beyond the means of treatment to focus on my patients’ outcomes.


In a field where process of elimination and inconclusive results are common diagnoses, I fight for answers and solutions for even the most complex rheumatologic conditions to help and empower my patients to achieve full remission.


Prior to opening my practice at UnabridgedMD, I was an academic clinician, teacher, and leader in the Departments of Rheumatology National Jewish Health and the University of Colorado School of Medicine. 


I also have a special interest in post-COVID-19 rheumatologic conditions. I am the Colorado lead for the COVID-19 global rheumatology alliance.  I also helped create the post-COVID-19 clinic at National Jewish Health and was its rheumatology lead.
