I pride myself on being a passionate, well-rounded, optimist. I see the world and the people I meet as intrinsically fascinating and rarely a day goes by in which I don’t discover a new, captivating fact or idea. In addition to curiosity, I am motivated by a strong sense of humanitarianism. I believe that human life has intrinsic value which I have the honor of helping nurture.
As a medical provider I am a firm believer in evidence based treatment approaches and scientifically driven prevention is a primary focus of mine. With this said, I know that the art of medicine requires creative thinking and mental flexibility. The best healthcare is delivered only through shared decision making between a doctor and a patient. I pride myself on being a physician who can explain my reasoning to a wide variety of patients from any walk of life. I also have a bad habit of trying to make people laugh.
I attended CSU for my undergraduate work and have a Bachelors in Psychology. I attended The University Of Colorado School of Medicine and received my MD in 2010 and subsequently completed Residency at Swedish Medical Center in Englewood, CO. I joined Coal Creek Family Medicine in 2013. They will have to drag me out of CO kicking and screaming.
I was drawn to the practice of Family Medicine due to the variety of people I meet and the broad scope of Family Medicine. I enjoy caring for all ages from pediatrics to geriatrics. I also enjoy doing office procedures including skin biopsies, laceration repair, vasectomies, etc. Other areas of interest of mine include diagnostic approaches to complicated symptomatology, habitual change including pharmacologic and non pharmacologic approaches, human neurophysiology and neurodiversity, insomnia, human sexuality and sexual function.
Personally, my wife and I have two young children and we have a passion for international travel, film, reading and the great outdoors. I am a hobby photographer and comic book enthusiast. I enjoy running, backpacking and cooking. I am currently trying to improve my chess game. I look forward to caring for you and your family here at Coal Creek Family Medicine.
