About me

I'm originally from Ohio and attended the University of Cincinnati for medical school, but moved to Colorado for residency and subsequently fell in love with the active lifestyle and the weather. My wife and I wanted to remain in Colorado after residency, and working with Kaiser Permanente was an easy choice as I was attracted to the emphasis on high-quality care and communication, both between providers and with patients and their families. I'm looking forward to serving the people of the Front Range.

About my practice

I've always been interested in science, but found myself also desiring personal connection with other people as I explored careers during college. Although I don't have any family in medicine, I felt myself naturally drawn toward the field with its mix of scientific knowledge and opportunity to directly and positively impact the lives of others. Hospital medicine provides me the opportunity to work toward mastery of a broad field of knowledge and to take personal responsibility for the health and wellbeing of those patients I serve. I endeavor to provide the best evidence-based and science-based medicine to all under my care; I strive to give each patient and family the time they deserve and to answer any question or concern to the best of my ability; and I'm committed to working with the health care team to help each person live their best life. I take care of hospitalized adult patients and coordinate care with specialists and patients’ primary care providers.

How I thrive

I try to lead an active, healthy lifestyle. Physical activity keeps me fresh and engaged, and I enjoy running, weight lifting, skiing and especially rock climbing, which is a new pursuit for me since moving to Colorado. I'm very interested in how we can maintain health and wellness through healthy behaviors and I'd be happy to discuss this with you. However, I also enjoy slowing down and always enjoy a good cup of coffee or a meal with my wife or friends. I'm a big soccer fan (Come on, you Spurs!). Finally, seeing my dog is always a high point of my day (closely followed by sharing pictures of her). In short, balance between engaging and satisfying work, service to others and refreshing personal time is what I strive for.

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 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 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 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.
