Kaiser Permanente provider
My gender: Male
Not accepting new patients. Please call 1-855-208-7221.
I was born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia. My interest in medicine stems from my father having a heart attack when I was 11 years old, combined with my interest in sciences during high school. I stayed in Atlanta attending Emory University for both college and medical school. After medical school, I had the urge to see a different part of the country and decided to come to the Rocky Mountains where outdoor opportunities were plentiful. During my residency at Swedish Medical Center, I met my wife, who is a Colorado native. We now have a wonderful young daughter and a Norwegian Elkhound to round out our family. I worked in private practice in Parker prior to joining Kaiser Permanente in 2009.
I became a family physician because I enjoy taking care of the whole family throughout all stages of life with a focus on preventive medicine. I enjoy being a patient's doctor over a long period of time. I like my patients to feel comfortable to discuss any issues or concerns about their health care with me anytime. My practice interests include hypertension, preventing heart disease, men's health and preventive medicine.
During my time away from work, team sports are my favorite form of exercise. Lately, I have played Ultimate Frisbee on a variety of different teams. I think exercise is very important for maintaining energy and a positive mood. My wife and I enjoy travel and skiing and look forward to teaching our daughter to ski in the coming years. My other interests include scuba diving, hiking, photography, movies and spending time with my wife and daughter.
