About Me

I am from Albuquerque, New Mexico. My love for the outdoors brought me to Colorado. I have a wonderful wife and 2 awesome children who have minds of their own. We have a huge dog, a medium-sized dog, a cat and ducks. My most proud accomplishment is helping take care of extremely sick patients, working to remove their pain, and watching them recover and return to happy, fulfilling lives. 

About my practice

I chose to specialize in general surgery because the human body fascinates me and I like to fix things. I like to help people take care of themselves. I believe we should all take care of ourselves with good diet, exercise and meaningful use of time. I treat patients the way I would like to be treated or as if they are my family members. I listen to understand each patient’s questions and concerns. Electronic medical records help me to see the big picture of a patient’s health, so I can make good use of our time together and provide the most appropriate care for their needs.

How I thrive

I love to bike, hike, garden and get to know people. My favorite authors are C.J. Box and Lee Child. I enjoy eating Asian food and my favorite pastime is watching my kids play sports.
