About me

I grew up in North Carolina but gradually moved west during my academic training—from UNC-Chapel Hill for college, to Vanderbilt for medical school, and then to Denver Health for residency training. My wife and I fell in love with the Colorado climate and landscapes and elected to stay and start our family here. We have a German shepherd who loves to hike, swim and play in the snow with us. We are expecting our first child.

About my practice

My favorite aspect of being an emergency medicine physician is the opportunity to rapidly assess and treat sick patients who are not sure what is making them ill. I like that emergency medicine is a team sport—nurses, techs, paramedics and other physicians are all integral to caring for our patients. We are both privileged and challenged to treat a diverse group of patients from all walks of life. I am always looking for ways to improve the clinical care that I deliver by staying current on new literature, reviewing difficult/interesting cases, and examining the way I communicate with patients and staff. I listen to understand my patients’ questions and concerns, so I can coordinate the most appropriate care for their needs.

How I thrive

I enjoy binge-reading on vacation and playing guitar—preferably with musicians better than myself.

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are responsible for notifying kp.org of any changes to their information, and untimely communication may result in outdated provider information appearing on the website.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 Kaiser Permanente is not responsible for use of outdated directories.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.

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

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.
