My personal approach to practicing medicine revolves entirely around the patient. I understand that being admitted to the hospital can be frightening and distressing; therefore, I focus on alleviating this as much as possible. I use evidence-based science, empathy, and education to ensure that my patients understand what is happening during their stay in the hospital while also treating their illnesses.
Medicine became my career choice after a beloved family member was diagnosed at a young age with advanced cancer. Fortunately, the cancer was cured by an amazing team of physicians and nurses, thus forever changing the lives of all in our family. I constantly reflect on this experience as I work in the hospital.
Practicing medicine is absolutely the most perfect career for me. It incorporates my love of science and taking care of people. It is a constantly evolving field that keeps me on my toes and never becomes stale.
I grew up in a military family (U.S. Army) and have lived all over the United States including Texas, Utah, Tennessee, and Georgia; I have even been able to briefly live in Germany and The Netherlands. Unsurprisingly, I love to travel and am always planning on my next big trip, either locally or internationally. My wife is a veterinarian in the U.S. Army, and we are extremely excited to be in Colorado. We are looking forward to many hikes (with our dogs, if possible), skiing, and meeting new people.
In my downtime, I enjoy reading science-fiction (still catching up on classics as my medical studies have delayed my reading list), watching movies of all genres, and talking with family. I am a big believer in personal fitness and I’m trying to experiment more in the kitchen and pushing myself back into weightlifting.
