About me

I'm originally from New York, but haven't lived there since the early 1980s. I am a retired Army colonel and a decorated combat veteran. I served closely with the Army surgeon general as consultant for my specialty. I supervised procurement, training, deployments, and staffing of all Army plastic surgeons in peacetime and wartime. I entered medicine in order to serve soldiers and families in a way consistent with my talents. Kaiser Permanente was an easy transition for me after Army life because of its commitment to members and families. I was raised by a nurse, have a twin sister who is a nurse, and am married to a nurse. I like to think they showed me how to approach patient care from a different, more patient-centered perspective.

About my practice

I appreciate the broad spectrum of plastic surgery and the management of complex problems. I enjoy working with patients and supporting your reconstructive and surgical options. There are often complex issues to discuss, and I try to guide you to your best personal choice. I enjoy collaboration with other specialists in the care of my patients. I view patient care as a team effort, and work to develop lasting relationships with my patients.

How I thrive

My best days are spent outdoors. I have climbed many of Colorado's fourteeners, and enjoy skiing, snowshoeing and boating. I have a wife, four grown children and one grandchild. I enjoy being involved with all my family’s activities.

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are responsible for notifying kp.org of any changes to their information, and untimely communication may result in outdated provider information appearing on the website.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 Kaiser Permanente is not responsible for use of outdated directories.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

To report any inaccuracies in the directory, contact Member Services. Members may also report inaccuracies at kp.org/memberservices.

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.
