At CHPG High Country Healthcare -Frisco, our family practice physicians are trained and qualified to diagnose and treat a broad spectrum of illnesses. We also have a Board Certified Pediatrician to care for children from birth to 18 years of age.
Dr. Durant Abernethy practices Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at CHPG High Country Healthcare Frisco. Dr. Abernethy has dual academic and hospital-based training in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics. Internists are best recognized as “specialists for adults” and pediatricians as “specialists for children.” His dual-training in these two disciplines enables him to provide a full complement of services from general primary care to prevention, diagnosis, and compassionate care for the entire spectrum of disease from temporary illness (flu, rashes, aches and pains) to complex chronic conditions (asthma, diabetes, arthritis and more) throughout a patient’s lifespan. This is especially useful for chronic diseases that start in childhood, but persist through one’s adult life.
Dr. Abernethy believes that, “Among the many advantages of being both an internist and pediatrician is that young patients can remain in my care even after they turn 18. I love to develop long-term relationships and this mix of disciplines allows me to facilitate them.”
Diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the end of his college studies, Dr. Abernethy’s personal and professional experience has led him to develop additional expertise in caring for people with any form of diabetes and is available for local residents to receive close-to-home care and for guests who may encounter challenges while visiting the region.
“Overall, my care philosophy is one of self-empowerment,” Dr. Abernethy says. “Patients can become very effective self-health managers, empowered to make good decisions for their own benefit and for their family.”
Dr. Abernethy completed his internship and residency in Internal Medicine and Pediatrics at the University of South Alabama Medical System, having earned his Medical Doctorate from the University of Kansas Medical School. He graduated from Vanderbilt University with a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy, Summa Cum Laude.
Prior to moving to Summit County, Dr. Loomis served as a pediatric hospitalist for more than 15,000 children of active-duty, U.S. Army soldiers at Fort Campbell, Kentucky while also caring for young clients at Centennial Pediatrics in Clarksville, Tennessee. He also spent one year in Bagdad, Iraq as a battalion surgeon. He is excited to get to know your family and watch your children grow and reach special milestones in their lives!
“I chose pediatrics because I like watching the development of the children,” says Dr. Loomis. “I feel that with some specialty medicine one’s professional focus is very narrow. As a pediatrician I get to be a specialist but also handle the specifics around all aspects of childhood health.”
Dr. Loomis will listen carefully to both you and your child and will take the time to answer your questions about what may be happening with your loved one and why. As a pediatrician, he understands that children are not simply small adults and he will develop a family-centered health care strategy to promote your child’s healthy development. Dr. Loomis will also serve as team leader should your child require coordinated care among several specialty practitioners
Raised in Highlands Ranch, Dr. Loomis graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Spanish from the University of Colorado in Boulder where he developed Spanish language fluency. He attended the University of Colorado School Of Medicine in Denver, completed his internship and residency at the Madigan Army Medical Center in Tacoma, Washington and is Board Certified by the American Academy of Pediatrics.

“My favorite part of being a family physician is taking care of the whole family. I enjoy delivering babies, and also taking care of their Grandparents. I want my patients to feel like they are being listened to by their physician, and I want to empower them in their own healthcare.”
