About me

I was raised in a family of 13 children in Chicago. My father and grandfather were both surgeons. I attended Amherst College in Amherst, Massachusetts, followed by medical school at the University of Illinois in Chicago. I studied internal medicine at the University of Colorado in Denver, and then did further training in geriatrics. Later in my career, I decided to specialize in radiation oncology and returned to Chicago to study at the Rush Medical College. I love the practice of medicine. In my spare time, I paint, sail and laugh a lot.

About my practice

I love the field of radiation oncology because I enjoy working with patients who are often in the biggest struggle of their lives. I find their courage inspiring. I feel privileged to work with patients who never complain about their treatment, no matter how long and difficult that treatment might be.

Even though the physicians of the Radiation Oncology department are situated in three hospitals – Saint Joseph Hospital, Good Samaritan Medical Center, and Sky Ridge Medical Center – we actually function as one united group. Each morning, all of the department physicians meet in a Quality Assurance meeting in which we review every doctor’s care of their respective patients. We believe this cooperative approach enhances safety and promotes the use of the most sophisticated and modern radiotherapy technologies and techniques.

How I thrive

I love coming to work – it charges my batteries. My colleagues bring their best energies and attitudes to the care of our patients. I believe that life is precious and wonderful. Working with patients battling cancer allows me to join with them as they work to live life fully and joyfully.

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.

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.
