Dr. Timko has practiced with Central Colorado Dermatology in Alamosa, Gunnison and Salida, Colorado since 2001. He and his wife, Tracy are raising their two boys in Salida and enjoy horseback riding, working cattle, skiing and all of the activities that this beautiful area offers.
Before Dr. Timko finished medical school, he was selected as a Naval Medical Scholar and started his active duty career with the United States Navy. He completed his internship at the Naval Medical Center, San Diego, CA and then completed training for Undersea Medicine in Florida and Connecticut. He served on Guam, where he was the Department Head of the Naval Activities Branch Medical Clinic. He was also the Diving/Hyperbaric Medical Officer where he not only served as a Navy Diver, but also ran the recompression Chamber for all of Micronesia. In addition, he was the Radiation Health Officer at US Naval Hospital Guam. After this overseas tour, he returned to San Diego where he completed his Dermatology Residency at the Naval Medical Center. During his residency, he was very involved in research of dermatological use of lasers (Q switched, Nd/YAG-532 & 1064, Alexandrite, Vascular lasers, CO2 lasers, Hair removal lasers and Erbium lasers). He published multiple papers regarding the use of lasers in tattoo pigment removal as well as hair removal. After completing his dermatology residency, Dr. Timko served as the Dermatology Department Head at Great Lakes Naval Hospital in Chicago.
Dr. Timko and his family chose to start a dermatology practice in central Colorado because of the natural beauty and the opportunity to live in a small town. Providing exceptional dermatological care to his patients in central Colorado has been Dr. Timko's priority since 2001.
