About me

I grew up in central Illinois where my dad taught at the University of Illinois and my mother worked at our church. As a result of growing up in a university town, I had the opportunity to become involved in computers and networks there in the 1970s and 1980s, which remains an interest to me to this day. I completed my residency in general surgery in Indianapolis at Indiana University in 1996. I was in practice in the Chicago suburbs until 2004 when we relocated to Colorado. My wife and I have two grown children who grew up here in Colorado and a dog named Molly Brown.

About my practice

I strive to understand your concerns and explain my thoughts on how to best address those concerns in a timely fashion. I’ll work with you to make an appropriate treatment plan that meets your needs. Electronic medical records help me to see the big picture of your health, so I can make good use of our time together and answer your questions. I take care of patients 16 years or older with a wide variety of surgical conditions. I do not personally perform laparoscopic groin hernia surgery, though other general surgeons in our department do.

How I thrive

My wife and I are spending more time traveling now that our children have grown. I enjoy reading both fiction and nonfiction as well as keeping up on surgical literature. I have had the opportunity to run a few half-marathons over the last few years and hope to be able to continue that.

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are responsible for notifying kp.org of any changes to their information, and untimely communication may result in outdated provider information appearing on the website.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

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.
