As a pediatrician, I find great satisfaction in building meaningful, lasting relationships with my patients and their families.  I desire to partner with my patients and families to provide personalized care and support.  I look forward to becoming a role model for my patients, an ally in their wellness and an advocate for their health from birth into adulthood.

Why I got in profession?

The heart of a child fascinates and inspires me. It holds such immense potential within so small a package. Within each child there lies an innocence and honesty and a flow of creativity and imagination that can be felt and shared by those around them. A child’s heart is truly special, and I believe that there are few moments in life more precious than when a child decides to entrust his heart to you. This is why I became a pediatrician.


I enjoy spending time with my family – we are currently exploring our beautiful city of Longmont and enjoying hiking and camping in the Rockies.  I also love to ski and hope to get back into downhill skiing as soon as possible!

I have been happily married to my wife, Criscelda, for almost 15 years and we have been blessed with two amazing children: our daughter, Lulu; and our younger son, Ambrose.  We love the outdoors and have a family goal of traveling the world.

This provider cares for children ages 0-17 years old.

Clinical interest for patients

I have a great enthusiasm for lifelong learning and dedication to excellence in pediatric patient care. As a pediatric hospitalist at Longs Peak Hospital, I specialize in newborn wellness in the newborn nursery, as well as care for any pediatric patients who have become ill and need hospital care. As a pediatrician at  Longmont Clinic, I love meeting with children and their families and becoming a partner in their care by answering all their questions, addressing their concerns, and providing anticipatory guidance on what to expect and watch out for until the child’s next visit.
