Kaiser Permanente provider
My gender: Male
Yes, my office is accepting new patients. May require referral.
My roots are in El Paso, and I was the first in my family to attend college. I came to Colorado for residency for a variety of reasons. My personality meshed much better with Colorado culture, and residency provided training with core business-of-medicine concepts. Medical school showed me that the delivery of health care is more than just medicine. I obtained an MBA with the goal to not only bridge health care and business as an organizational leader, but to optimize the delivery of care and affordability to a large population of people. Undoubtedly, Kaiser Permanente is a phenomenal place to start that journey.
Together we will thrive – being a partner in my patients' care is central to being a physician. I am more than a patient's hospital physician. I seek to be your team manager during one of the most crucial and anxious times of your life. I treat patients the way I would treat my own grandmother. I try to understand the difficult decisions and situations we all face. I seek to deliver care that optimizes both quality and affordability for my patients. Health care is more than just medicine. I will assist you in navigating your care, so that you feel connected with the full spectrum of providers to receive the care you need.
My parents fervently told me to never forget where I came from. I thrive with frequent mountain biking and skiing, along with gym workouts several times weekly. I practice mindfulness, take care of my one-eyed English bulldog, and hope to volunteer with the Colorado mountain bike association. I am passionate about patient safety, managed and accountable care, and Lean principles.
