I always wanted to live in Colorado after vacationing here as a child. I enjoy the outdoor lifestyle and the great weather. I am married to another Colorado Permanente Medical Group physician and have two daughters.
I enjoy providing regional and obstetrics anesthesia. I feel lucky to be able to work with both my anesthesiology and surgical partners. I think the collegial atmosphere leads to the best possible patient care. I take plenty of time to answer all of your anesthesia-related questions in the pre-operative area. I also do everything I can to decrease your anxiety during this stressful situation. I practice evidence-based medicine and anesthesia. I keep up with the current research in our field so that patients can receive the most up-to-date care. Having access to robust electronic medical records allows me to access patient information with ease in the hospital, even when away from Kaiser Permanente medical offices.
I enjoy biking, hiking and skiing. Most of my time outside of work is spent with my daughters and supporting their activities.
