About me

Welcome to my Web page. My hope is that if you take a few minutes to learn about me, you will feel more at ease at your first visit, which in turn will allow me to learn more about you. I feel very lucky to be a part of Kaiser Permanente. I make a daily commitment to deliver compassionate, high-quality care and to stay up to date on current advances in my ever-changing field.

Biography

I was born in Brooklyn and raised on Long Island (my accent is a real giveaway!). I knew I wanted to be a physician from the time I was 7 years old. I attended the State University of New York (SUNY) at Stony Brook on a Regents scholarship. I then received my medical degree from the Health Sciences Center at SUNY Stony Brook. During surgery training in Brooklyn, I was named Best Teacher and Chief Resident of the Year. Completing a research fellowship in the lab at New York University, I invented a plastic surgery device and patented it. I began my trek westward to Houston for a plastic surgery residency. Afterward, I moved to Denver to join a private practice.

About my practice

I became triple board certified in general, plastic, and hand surgery. I chose to focus on plastic surgery, my true passion. During a decade in private practice, I was on many hospital committees and was elected to 2 terms as chief of surgery at Presbyterian/St. Luke's Medical Center. My talented colleagues, wonderful team, and I strive to do our best every day and deliver personalized care in a comfortable setting. My entire team celebrates diversity and promotes tolerance and inclusion. I am up front with members, and I'll also use my sense of humor to keep you in a positive state of mind. I find it very gratifying that plastic surgery lets me express my artistic side and allows for creative problem solving. If you choose to become my patient, I will review your medical records completely, and we will discuss your surgical goals and your expectations. We will review in clear terms your options, possible risks, and complications. You need to feel empowered to be a partner in your care and enable a safe, speedy recovery.

How I thrive

My interests include spending time with my wife and our wonderful son. I try to do cardio and weight training 5 times a week. I enjoy golf (more than it enjoys me) and cooking good food, particularly advanced barbeque. I am an avid reader (I especially enjoy anything by Stephen King). I have an enduring passion for music, especially blues and classic jazz. I am a self-professed computer geek and love any tech gadgets, digital nature photography, and pen and fossil collecting. I am proud to be a sideline physician for the Special Olympics and perform exams at breast cancer awareness events. I participate in free surgery days for our community’s uninsured residents through AccessOC. I just wish there were a few more hours in every day!
