About me

I was raised in El Paso, Texas and growing up thought that I wanted to be an engineer. I went to MIT in Cambridge, MA and got my bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering. While there I realized that my passion was not for engineering but rather for the practice of medicine, following my father’s footsteps! I returned to Texas for Medical School at the University of Texas San Antonio and then after three years in Pittsburgh for internal medicine training, I returned back to San Antonio for my Endocrinology Fellowship training. I moved to Denver in 2009 to be close to family and have never regretted that decision.

About my practice

I am Board Certified in Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism. I have been in private practice since 2004 and enjoy treating patients with various thyroid diseases (including thyroid nodules, thyroid cancer, and patients needing thyroid nodule biopsies), osteoporosis, adrenal gland, and pituitary gland problems. I have extensive experience treating diabetes including managing insulin pumps and interpreting continuous glucose monitoring. My goal is for patients to receive comprehensive endocrinology care in a professional, patient friendly, and compassionate environment.

How I thrive

While I love the work that I do as a physician, my time spent outside of the office is also extremely valuable. I have yet to become a morning person but am committed to starting most days with some kind of exercise¬¬¬¬, as I do believe that making an effort to keep my body healthy is important. Spending quality time with my family and friends also brings me more joy than just about anything. I am spiritually connected and continually growing in my faith which helps to ground me. I have also become completely addicted to ballroom dancing and absolutely love getting out on the dance floor! As Wayne Dyer said, "When you dance, your purpose is not to get to a certain place on the floor. It’s to enjoy each step along the way." Those words are true not only on the dance floor but for life in general. Live in the present!

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 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.
