I strongly feel that the keys to a successful patient interaction involve listening, empathy, humility and education. I strive to employ these principals even at the busiest of times. Each patient deserves my best and all questions deserve thoughtful, medically appropriate answers. I strive to keep my surrounding bubble happy and energized. I believe that leading by example will help colleagues and staff during stressful times, thus allowing the clinic flow to remain a positive experience for everyone.
I recently relocated back to Denver after living and working on Oahu for the past three years. I hope to bring the Aloha spirit back to Denver through my patient care. I am married to an amazing lady who challenges me and makes me laugh every day. I also have two dogs and a cat, who challenges me and makes me laugh every day. We are very active and enjoy hiking, biking and skiing. As a family, we believe in the work hard play hard philosophy.
