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.
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.
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.
