About me

My medical training took me away from Colorado for more than 10 years and it's wonderful to be back taking care of patients and families facing the challenges brought on by serious illness. I have a unique skill set when it comes to listening and communicating with patients about difficult subjects. It has been wonderful to find such a good fit, both with Palliative/Supportive Care and with Kaiser Permanente.

About my practice

Palliative care is a very special corner of medicine where we get to look at the big picture and help patients prioritize what is going to be most important to them in the time they have remaining, however long that may be. We often see patients who have been on a rocky course with multiple setbacks and hopefully create a safe space for some recovery and resilience. I listen and seek to understand my patients’ questions and concerns. I'm not afraid to candidly tell my patients what I think based on my understanding of the options they are weighing. I work as a team with our specialists, pharmacists and others to coordinate my patients’ care.

How I thrive

I'm a collector of recipes and hoping to become a better cook—one of those people who can throw together something decent from odds and ends found in the pantry/refrigerator. I enjoy watching Chopped to learn about new ingredients.

To find:

  • a Kaiser Permanente provider’s office hours, search our facility directory
  • network providers’ office hours, call their office directly
  • providers in your plan or accepting new patients, call 303-338-4545 or 1-800-218-1059 or 711 (TTY for the hearing/speech impaired) anytime day or night.

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are responsible for notifying kp.org of any changes to their information, and untimely communication may result in outdated provider information appearing on the website.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.

Questions? Please call or visit your local Member Services department.

The TTY number is now 711 for all KPCO

You can also call the State of Colorado Board of Medical Examiners at (303) 894-7690.

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.
