My gender: Male
Where I practice
I grew up in the mountains of Utah, though I lived in the Northeast for several years prior to moving back to the Intermountain West. I completed my undergraduate degree at the University of Pennsylvania, attended Tufts University School of Medicine, and then returned to Penn for my residency and chief residency in internal medicine. I moved to Colorado for my cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology training. I spent the next few years as a cardiac electrophysiologist and assistant professor of medicine at the University of Colorado. My research focused on the quality of care for patients with cardiovascular disease, and on the use of digital technology in health care delivery. I was fortunate to join Kaiser Permanente in 2018 to focus on the delivery of high-quality and high-value cardiovascular care.
About my practice
I chose to practice as a cardiologist because cardiovascular disease is a major cause of patient discomfort and suffering that can be treated. I am fortunate to work with exceptional colleagues to help improve patients’ quality of life and help patients live longer lives. My practice focuses on identifying what is important to patients and their families in order to best deliver care that helps patients achieve their goals. As a cardiologist, I have many tools available to help our patients live happier, healthier and longer lives with cardiovascular disease.
My practice is open to patients 18 years of age and older. I predominantly see patients with cardiovascular disease, most of whom are referred to see me by their primary care physician or other providers. I perform invasive cardiovascular procedures, including implantation of pacemaker and implantable cardioverter-defibrillators.
How I thrive
I thrive in mind, body and spirit by spending time with family both at home and outside. I feel most at home in the mountains of Colorado and Utah. I enjoy mountain biking, downhill skiing, running and fly fishing. I enjoy listening to music of all genres and cooking for family and friends.
