About me

I am originally from Oklahoma City but have lived in St. Louis, Philadelphia and Denver over the years for my medical training. After completing fellowship in my hometown, I decided to move back to Denver and join the Pulmonary/Critical Care group at Kaiser Permanente. My wife and I have two kids and we love living in Denver. We try to do as much outdoor activity as possible by hiking and camping.

About my practice

My general philosophy in my practice of medicine is that much of the time, less is more. I try to take a very measured and thoughtful view of tests and therapies for disease. I decided to go into Pulmonary/Critical Care for the breadth of practice it allows me. The ICU is very tense and exciting and requires making difficult decisions very quickly. Pulmonary clinic then allows me to slow down a bit and interact with patients in a calmer environment. In both settings, I see patients at very scary and vulnerable times in their lives, and I hope I can offer some measure of comfort and reassurance by providing care that is thoughtful and consistent with their values.

How I thrive

Practicing medicine can be grueling and finding ways to relax outside of work is key. My family and I like to spend time outdoors in the mountains to re-center ourselves. In addition, I have many hobbies that keep me occupied at home. I like to brew beer (and drink it!), cook and play golf (not well). I read a lot and watch movies – I tend to enjoy older classics.

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. However, providers are responsible for notifying kp.org of any changes to their information, and untimely communication may result in outdated provider information appearing on the website. The printed directory is current as of the date of publication. Kaiser Permanente is not responsible for use of outdated directories.

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.
