About me

I grew up in Arizona, which is also where I completed medical school and my pediatric training. While I made the decision to become a physician in high school, I have always enjoyed many areas of medicine and didn’t decide on pediatrics until I was in medical school. I moved to Colorado to enjoy outdoor activities. Since residency I have been in private practice and worked at Kaiser Permanente, practicing both pediatrics and medical informatics. As my kids have grown and the opportunity to return to Kaiser Permanente came my way, I jumped at the chance to return to the style of practice that I feel is best. Practicing pediatrics at Kaiser Permanente allows me to care for children the way I was trained to do, in an environment that is supportive of both the physician and the patient.

About my practice

I have always enjoyed interacting with children and I try to get them involved in their own care. As the kids get older I encourage them to talk to me about their health and have an understanding of what they can do to maintain or improve it. I frequently find myself agreeing with the old saying that laughter is the best medicine and bring humor into my interactions with patients and families, while being serious when needed. During your visit, I strive to educate your family on how to care for yourselves and provide the information you need to join with me in making health care decisions. I feel that this results in quality care that makes everyone more comfortable.

How I thrive

I can frequently be found in the mountains hiking, biking, skiing and camping. I also enjoy motorsports such as riding ATVs, dirt bikes and boating. I do most of my own home and yard maintenance along with car care. This gives me more ways to relax as well as something I can take pride in. I feel staying busy in a variety of activities is a key to having a balanced life. Laughing and enjoying life may be the best path to good health. This is what I try to do both at work and on my own time.

  • providers in your plan or accepting new patients, call 303-338-4545 or 1-800-218-1059 or 711 (TTY for the hearing/speech impaired), 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

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 considers the following factors/criteria as it builds and maintains provider networks:

  • Size and demographics of the population to be served;
  • The inventory of provider types required to serve the population and using practitioner to member ratios and geographic access standards metrics to ensure adequacy;
  • Application of rigorous credentialing criteria encompassing but not limited to educational training, licensing, professional experience, board certification, and professional references.

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 KFHP (Kaiser Foundation Health Plan) products and lines of business. 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 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

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.
