I believe that my patients are experts in what is important to them and their lives. I believe that my it is your body and your life and I am a consultant there to help you live the best life you want to live. I reject paternalistic styles of medicine and try to work with and partner with my patients. I enjoy my job the most when I get to know patients on a personal level – I also think the more I understand their lives, the better I can help them.

I love spending time with my wife, three daughters, two dogs, and our parrot. I love

Research interest for patients

My research is aimed at fundamentally changing and improving how patients make decisions around invasive cardiovascular technologies. I have been funded under an NIH career development award, three NHLBI RO1s (two Co-I, one PI), and three PCORI projects studying shared decision making among older adults making decisions around invasive technologies. I have participated in the American College of Cardiology’s shared decision making task force and I am an active participant of the International Patient Decision Aid Standards writing committee. Recently, I have been named Director of Implementation Research for the Denver Veterans Affairs Geriatric Research, Education, and Clinical Center.
