About me

I am originally from Herefordshire, England. I moved to the U.S. in 2009 with my American wife and one son. We have now expanded that collection to three sons and have lived in San Diego for nine years. My wife and I have always loved Colorado and Denver in particular. Having grown up in the outdoors I wanted the same for my kids, and as such, we found our way to Denver.

About my practice

Anesthesia for many patients represents the fear of the unknown. As an anesthesiologist, I have limited time to get to know my patients, as I typically don’t meet you until your day of surgery. I do my best in the time available to emphasize that you are my focus during your entire time in the operating room. I review your electronic medical records to see the big picture of your health, and listen to understand your questions and concerns. I practice medicine as if my mother was the patient at all times (I like my mother). If my patients return to the Post-Anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) comfortable, safe and better off after surgery, then I am a contented doctor. I practice all types of anesthesia, but my primary interest is cardiothoracic anesthesiology.

How I thrive

I love early morning runs with my dog. 4:30 a.m. with no one else around is my favorite time of day. I grew up on sports that most Americans would consider obscure – rugby, cricket, soccer. Since being in the states, I have come to love football and basketball. My wife tells me I would watch chess if it was televised.

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are responsible for notifying kp.org of any changes to their information, and untimely communication may result in outdated provider information appearing on the website.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 Kaiser Permanente is not responsible for use of outdated directories.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 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.

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.

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.
