About me

Originally from Michigan, I came to Colorado for my training and, like many people, the weather and active lifestyle. I stay busy with outdoor activities including mountain biking and skiing, as well as following my kids in all their activities. 

About my practice

I believe that engaging patients to play an active role in their care is the key to the best experience and superior health outcomes. Clear and direct communication lays the foundation for the provider-patient relationship, and I pride myself on always trying to listen attentively with an open mind to understand all aspects of a symptom or issue. With an outstanding team of nurses, pharmacists and advanced practice providers, we provide excellent care to treat all facets of GI diseases and focus on maintaining GI health. I believe in treating illnesses with the long-term goal of achieving and maintaining wellness. A healthy diet, exercise and focus on balancing work life and personal time is essential to a long and quality life. I care for adults age 18-90, and most of the patients we see in the Gastroenterology department are referred by their primary care provider.

How I thrive

Part of Kaiser Permanente’s mission is to improve the health of the communities we serve. I have been involved in helping provide specialty care advice to safety net clinics around the state. It is gratifying to know that we impact the care of patients who do not have access to specialty physicians.

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are responsible for notifying kp.org of any changes to their information, and untimely communication may result in outdated provider information appearing on the website.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 Kaiser Permanente is not responsible for use of outdated directories.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