I like to use a patient-centered approach to my care, and enjoy empowering my patients to take an active role in their rehabilitation process. I take pride in taking time to educate my patients on the most likely cause of their pain and disability, providing them with treatment options, and collectively determining the best plan moving forward. I like to focus on functional gains and patient-directed goals to help guide the path forward.
I love enjoying everything Colorado has to offer with my wife, daughter and dog (Bear). I spend my spare time mountain biking, hiking, playing guitar, snowboarding, skiing, listening to music, biking to many of the fantastic local breweries, and traveling.
