About me

I grew up in a small town in Iowa and since then I have lived and studied in a variety of locations including Iowa City, Baltimore, San Francisco and North Carolina. I enjoyed each location and am glad to have settled here in Colorado more than 20 years ago with my wife and two children. I enjoy the outdoors, sports and taking long walks. It is a tremendous honor to be able to provide cardiac care to patients and to work as part of the terrific team at Kaiser Permanente.

About my practice

I work with patients ages 18 or older with possible heart-related issues. I am glad to be part of a great team that helps to optimize our patients’ care. Our nurses and medical assistants are terrific, both in the medical office and the hospital. We have outstanding support from highly trained, specialized PhD pharmacists. Our primary care providers and hospitalists are amazing. My colleagues in other specialties work closely with us to provide coordinated care. My partners in Cardiology are excellent and we work closely together to provide care for Kaiser Permanente heart patients.

While a holistic approach is essential, I generally believe that it is important to try to apply the results of clinical trials, when applicable, to the care of patients. I also realize that much of medicine and cardiology is unsettled and controversial. I try to let patients know which pieces of advice are based on extensive well-established data, and what areas are less certain. I believe it’s key to partner with engaged patients regarding health care decisions and to individualize advice based on a patient’s particular circumstances and philosophy. While the internet can be a helpful resource, I believe that it can also create difficulties for patients and providers.

How I thrive

My family and I greatly enjoy the outdoors in Colorado. I appreciate the many cuisines we are fortunate to experience here. I am glad to live in an interesting, diverse city.

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), 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

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 quality, member experience, or cost-related measures to select practitioners and facilities in Marketplace Silver-tier plans as it does for all other KFHP (Kaiser Foundation Health Plan) products and lines of business. 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 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 CPMG (Colorado Permanente Medical Group). 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.
