About me

From a young age, I was always interested in trying to figure out how the body works, and what happens when it isn’t working normally. My father was a geneticist who loved quizzing me about how genetic information is transmitted almost from the time I could read. I also loved being around people and getting to know individuals from all walks of life. Medicine was the perfect combination of my passion for the human body and a desire to have a professional life filled with personal connections. As a physician, it is an honor and a privilege to be the person that patients open up to and discuss some of the most troublesome and potentially personal aspects of their lives. Helping patients through their medical issues and seeing them get better is what fulfills me.

About my practice

Head and neck surgery is an incredible field of medicine. It allows me to see patients from newborn babies to geriatric patients and patients with anything from nasal polyps to cancers of the head and neck. It is the opportunity to see patients with a range of medical issues and from many different demographics which drew me to the specialty. Sinus disease, endocrine surgery, salivary gland disease, and sleep disorders are particular areas of interest.

I look forward to meeting you and helping you with whatever head and neck concerns you are having! I promise to do my best to take the time needed for you to be heard and understood. I will do everything in my power to maximize your quality of life. I believe that you, as the patient, are the most important member on our medical team, and any plan should be developed together, taking into account your preferences and lifestyle.

How I thrive

Outside of work, I enjoy being outdoors in the beautiful Colorado mountains. I am an avid golfer and am fortunate to be in a state where we can play year-round!

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.
