About me

I’m from the East Coast, and after attending Johns Hopkins Medical School in Baltimore, my wife and I were determined to live where humidity was low and the sun shines! Thirty years later, we’re still thrilled with our choice to move to Colorado and now our two children can proclaim to be native Coloradans.

About my practice

I chose to practice emergency medicine because it’s where I thought I could make the most difference to people. The Emergency Department is often a place of crisis, where people are at their sickest and most vulnerable. I enjoy the challenges of caring for the full spectrum of acute illness and making a difference in people’s lives. I also think it’s critical to involve patients in their own care to the extent that is possible. I can give my opinion and estimate the potential risk and benefit of various tests, procedures, and hospitalization, but it’s important to work with each patient’s values and goals to individualize care. So often in medicine, less is more. Our bodies have a great capacity to heal themselves, and often times the best thing a doctor can do is to get out of the way. In practical terms, though, this means avoiding unnecessary tests and procedures that have the capacity to harm people.

How I thrive

I thrive by staying active. I lecture nationally and am involved in many clinical projects at Saint Joseph Hospital to help me and my colleagues deliver the best care possible to our patients. I stay active physically—I swim, weight lift, bike to work, and do other exercises to keep my body healthy and lower stress. I stay active with my family. My wife and I have been together since we started dating in 1981. We have two great kids (now verging on adults), and are so proud of the young men they have become. We also have two dogs and three cats.

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.
