Dr. Michael T. Piel, MD


Dr. Piel was raised in Park Hill. He began his education at Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusettes.  With dreams of becoming a Doctor he returned to Colorado and received his doctorate from University of Colorado School of Medicine.  He entered into general surgery at the National Naval Medical Ceter in Bethesda, MD.  He then served on the USS Woodrow Wilson, a nuclear submarine, as a Medical and Diving Officer in the 1970's.  In the 1980's Dr. Piel moved back to Colorado to serve as an emergency physician before starting his own family practice.  In 1982, he opened the doors to Bellview Family Medicine and has worked hard to achieve a very busy and successful family practice, now known as Ranch View Family Medicine.  His passion for his patients and wanting to continue with their care led him away from emergency medicine and into family practice.  With mixed feelings, Dr. Piel plans to retire.  In January 2012, he decided to end one phase of his life to begin another.  He moved from Denver, his lifelong home, to join his wife in Dallas where he switched from the art of medicine to the culinary arts.  He is attending the Art Institute of Dallas Culinary School.
