I hope to provide patients the best possible care in alignment with their individual needs and goals, and doing this often involves multiple medical and surgical disciplines. I continuously work to keep my knowledge and skills current with the latest literature and technology, and I enjoy working with all providers to achieve the best outcomes as quickly as safely as possible for our patients.
I enjoy spending time with my family, being outdoors, skiing, scuba diving, and getting to know new people.

My clinical interests include stroke prevention through carotid surgery or stenting; treatment of aneurysmal disease; aortic, mesenteric and renal interventions such as angioplasty or stenting; limb salvage or preservation; treatment of venous disease including varicose veins, deep vein thromboses (DVT) and pulmonary emboli; and vascular access for dialysis.
- Volunteer activities
I like the idea of equal access to medical care for all, and I participated in a medical mission in Guayaquil, Ecuador, that involved assisting with hernia, gallbladder, and cleft palate surgeries.
I also feel everyone deserves access to food and shelter, and I have enjoyed serving Thanksgiving meals to those in need.
