Where I practice
For one who finds puzzles and problem-solving irresistible, I became passionate about neurology very early in my training. I became a neurologist expecting that medical breakthroughs would allow treatment, if not a cure, for most neurologic patients. Symptoms inevitably evolve – the story changes, priorities shift, and new issues arise. I have since learned that the most rewarding part of my practice is to listen and grow with each patient, and to walk side by side with them on a journey toward healing. It is a privilege to work with neurologic patients who show me what it is to be truly human.
I grew up in Southern California and completed my training and research in neurology at Washington University in St. Louis. After I moved to Denver in 2002, I worked in private practice at Rose Medical Center. I joined Kaiser Permanente in 2019 to be part of a team of medical professionals dedicated to exceptional care and treatment.
About my practice
As a neurologist, I am trained to care for diseases of the brain and spinal cord, as well as the nerves which stretch over every inch of the body. I am a general neurologist who evaluates patients from young adulthood to the elderly. I have specialty training in movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and in neuromuscular diseases such as peripheral neuropathy. I perform injections of botulinum for particular neurologic conditions. I have an interest in migraines. Overall, I am a collaborator at heart. I am eager to explore diagnostic and treatment decisions. With current medical evidence and support, a patient and I, as a team, can make the best decision on next steps.
How I thrive
As a husband and as a dad of twin preteen girls, my favorite time each day is sitting down and chatting over dinner. Family life grounds me in what’s most important. When outside the office, you might find me playing the piano, cheering my girls’ soccer team, or preparing a meal for a group of friends. When time allows, I enjoy cycling and hiking across the Rocky Mountain region.
