My gender: Male
Where I practice
I was born and raised in Peoria, Illinois, went to medical school at Washington University in St. Louis, completed my internal medicine residency at University of Michigan, and joined the internal medicine faculty there as a clinical assistant professor for more than a decade. I moved to Denver in 2008 for my wife’s job as an eating disorder psychiatrist, taking a couple years to be an at-home dad and remodel my home. I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2010 as an internal medicine physician, went to the University of Colorado to complete a hospice and palliative medicine fellowship, and rejoined Kaiser Permanente in 2013 in the Palliative Medicine department. I have two kids in college, one in high school and three dogs at home.
About my practice
I currently help care for some of our sickest, homebound patients with advanced heart, lung or liver disease or advanced cancer. I specialize in compassionate communication and care of the whole patient and family, working with a home nurse, social worker and chaplain to achieve patient-focused goals. I take the time to get to know my patients and listen to understand their questions and concerns. I approach the sometimes difficult truths of illness with transparency, honesty and compassion to answer patients’ questions and help prepare them for the future.
How I thrive
I thrive by golfing with a close group of friends weekly, maintaining a strong connection to my family, and walking the open space near our home a few times each week with our three rescue dogs. I love the occasional Texas hold’em poker tournament and Fantasy Football.
