About me

I am originally from Arkansas, went to medical school at the University of Missouri in Columbia, did my residency training at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center in Pennsylvania, was in private practice in Bloomington, Indiana, and then finally landed here in Colorado! I was a hospitalist physician for several years, and then transitioned back into outpatient practice. I enjoy treating diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure and high cholesterol. I also enjoy helping patients to identify their quality of life goals and achieve those goals with a care plan that is in harmony with their personal value system. I love science and applying current known scientific evidence to decision making.

About my practice

I believe that among the most important investments you will make in your lifetime are those that maintain or improve your health. I want to help people who have a sincere interest in improving their overall wellness achieve their maximum quality of life. I believe that healthy living choices are often as effective as medications in managing many health problems. I am a believer in “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” Both the physician and the patient have to do the work to decrease the chance of illness when possible through appropriate screening and to manage diseases effectively in order to reduce complications. The physician-patient partnership is vital to achieving and maintaining good health. To build a great partnership there must be mutual respect, trust, honesty and a willingness to work together.

How I thrive

I enjoy spending time with my family, camping, hiking, skiing, reading, movies and music. My family and I love to travel together, both exploring new places and revisiting old favorites and old friends.

To find:

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.

Information about a practitioner is provided to us by the practitioner or the practitioner's network, or is obtained as part of the credentialing process. An authorization or referral may be required to access some providers in this directory. If you have questions, contact Member Services.

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.
