A CU Medicine provider.
I strive to provide the best care for my patients. I seek to hear my patients first and then educate them in all the treatment options, so we can together, make the best treatment decision for each individual person. I believe that each person is unique and that the treatment varies according to the expectations and the lifestyle of each individual.
In my spare time, I enjoy outdoor activities and work out at the gym. I also love dogs, I like to read and learn about the different breeds of dogs.
