About me

I am originally from Canada. I went to medical school and completed my anesthesia training at the University of Toronto. I did subspecialty training in Houston in the late 1980s in regional anesthesia and pain management. I initially moved to Colorado in 1989 to work at the University of Colorado. I joined Colorado Permanente Medical Group in 1990 and have been practicing with Kaiser Permanente ever since. I am now one of the longest serving members of my department.

About my practice

I enjoy performing regional anesthesia, including nerve blocks, spinals and epidurals. I am also interested in acute pain management in the peri-operative area. This often entails providing continuous forms of nerve blocks to patients who have undergone major operations. I do my best to help and encourage my surgical and anesthesia colleagues in this endeavor. I have a strong belief that no patient should suffer the consequences of poorly managed post-operative pain. I look forward to meeting my patients and enjoy learning about them. I would encourage patients to ask their providers what course of treatment they would want for themselves in a similar situation.

How I thrive

I am an avid cyclist and try to ride to work on a daily basis. I also enjoy cooking and have a firm belief in eating well with proper nutrition. I have a son and a daughter. My son is launched in his career and lives in Los Angeles, and my daughter is in law school at the University of Colorado.

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.

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.

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.
