Where I practice
I’m a Colorado native who went to Saint Olaf College in Minnesota for undergraduate education before returning to the University of Colorado Health Sciences Center for my medical degree. I also completed my internship, residency, and fellowship at the University of Colorado. I joined the Kaiser Permanente Oncology department in 2005 and have been here ever since. I am board certified in hematology and oncology, and I have led our Kaiser Permanente oncology clinical trials program for more than eight years. I also have an interest in health services and cancer outcomes research, and I have co-authored several research papers that have been published in peer reviewed medical journals. More recently I have served as our department’s quality and value advisor and as the director of the Excellence in Cancer Care Committee. I was honored to be recognized as a 5280 Magazine Top Doctor in 2018.
About my practice
I pursued a career in oncology because I find it rewarding to support patients as they navigate their way through a very frightening illness. My goal is to really listen and understand what my patient’s concerns and goals are, so that we can craft a care plan together. My areas of focus are brain, bladder, prostate, kidney, breast, lung and hematologic malignancies, as well as benign hematology. I love working at Kaiser Permanente because of the great patient-centered doctors that are drawn to work here. I would trust the care of my family members to any of my colleagues.
How I thrive
My wife and three kids and I live in Greenwood Village, and in my leisure time, I enjoy singing, biking, hiking, and spending time with my family.
