I am originally from Long Island, New York. I went to college at the University of Colorado at Boulder and fell in love with Colorado. I have 2 children and they are my biggest accomplishment. I became a physician because I believe there is no more impactful way to work with people than to contribute to their health and well-being.
Family medicine is my passion due to the variety of the field and the relationships I build with my patients. I believe it is a privilege to be your physician. There is a trust that must be earned in order to establish a good relationship. I will work tirelessly to earn and keep your confidence. I will partner with you to make treatment plans that meet your needs, and work with our specialists, pharmacists and others to coordinate your care. I have a particular interest in helping patients with diabetes reach their goals. I find this is best achieved through a teamwork-based approach using simple, easy to understand directions and setting obtainable goals.
I enjoy getting involved in the community. I have formerly led group discussions regarding a variety of medical topics at community and senior centers. My hobbies include going to the movies, playing guitar, getting outside, and do-it-yourself projects. Most of all, I enjoy spending time with my wife, 2 children and dog.
