I was raised in New Jersey, but trained all over the country. The first eight years of my career were spent on faculty at two medical schools in Boston, where I met my wife, who is originally from Colorado. We moved in 2017 to be closer to family and so she could start her residency at CU. I enjoy spending time with our extremely shy German Shepherd rescue, road cycling, snowboarding and reading current fiction.
Dermatology is a wonderful field because it offers me the chance to diagnose and treat patients with relatively few additional tests. I strive to provide thorough, empathetic care while working to keep my clinic running on time or ahead of schedule because I know your time is valuable. I look forward to seeing my patients and getting to know you so we can develop a treatment plan that meets your needs and lifestyle. I respect you as a partner in maintaining your health, and find that you are able to better understand your health by accessing your medical record, prescription information and lab results at kp.org. I especially enjoy treating patients with autoimmune skin diseases – from psoriasis to lupus of the skin. I endeavor to be an early adopter of new treatments in our field.
Physical activity and spending time with my family are the cornerstones of my mental and physical fitness. In addition to cycling, I often try to jog, swim or skate ski to mix up my physical activity. Cooking dinner (often Asian food), ideally while listening to roots/reggae/dancehall music, offers a daily reset button for me as well.
