About me

I am originally from Peru. I decided to live in Colorado because the characteristics of the Rocky Mountains are very similar to the Andes. I have three adult sons – a public defendant, a physical therapist and a teacher. I became a physician because I was fascinated with the science of medicine and the possibility to help other human beings in distress. I am very proud to have contributed to developing the best NICU in the state of Colorado, where all the disciplines participate in the care of the sickest and most vulnerable babies in an environment of family-centered care.

About my practice

My philosophy is a transparent and collaborative approach to neonatology, combining evidence-based medicine and the art of medicine that I have learned through more than 35 years of practice at Saint Joseph Hospital. Since Spanish is my first language, it is very rewarding for me to be able to help the parents of my patients whose primary language is Spanish. Our team will provide the best possible care for your baby and we will help you through this difficult experience with timely communication that answers your questions and concerns. I encourage parents to participate in the daily care of your infant. I enjoy getting to know my patients’ families and making a treatment plan that meets your baby’s needs.

How I thrive

I have served as a member of the Institutional Review Board for SCL Health (and its predecessors) for 25 years, and as a member of the Executive Committee of the Perinatal Care Quality Collaborative for the last eight years. I have played volleyball since my youth and still compete in a national tournament at my age level. Volleyball is a team sport and shares similarities with some of the aspects of how we practice evidence-based medicine in the NICU. I am on the Board of Directors of the Rocky Mountain Region Volleyball Association. I also love photography, reading fiction and listening to music.

Information in this online directory is updated periodically and applies to commercial plans underwritten by Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of Colorado. The availability of physicians, hospitals, providers, and services may change. To verify whether a provider accepts Kaiser Permanente plans, contact the provider directly. Current provider information is available at kp.org/locations. This information is updated within 72 business hours of receipt from providers. Kaiser Permanente of Colorado attempts to ensure the online directory contains up-to-date information.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same quality, member experience, or cost-related measures to select practitioners and facilities in Marketplace Silver-tier plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business. The measures may include, but are not limited to, HEDIS/CAHPS performance, member/patient complaints, patient safety scores, hospital quality measures, and geographic need. Members enrolled in KFHP Marketplace plans have access to all professional, institutional and ancillary health care providers who participate in KFHP plans' contracted provider network, in accordance with the terms of the members' KFHP plan of coverage. All Kaiser Permanente Medical Group physicians and network physicians are subject to the same quality review processes and certifications.

Kaiser Permanente uses the same geographic distribution consideration to select hospitals in Marketplace plans as it does for all other Kaiser Foundation Health Plan (KFHP) products and lines of business.

Referrals to affiliated/contracted physicians/providers in Denver/Boulder

Affiliated/contracted physicians/providers are not part of the Colorado Permanente Medical Group (CPMG). They are physicians/providers who have a contract with the CPMG.

If your CPMG physician decides that you require covered services not available internally from CPMG, he or she will refer you to an affiliated/contracted physician/provider.

You must have a written referral to the affiliated/contracted physician/provider in order for Kaiser Permanente Colorado to cover the services. A referral is a written authorization from Kaiser Permanente for you to receive a covered service from an affiliated/contracted physician/provider.
