My care philosophy is to provide personalized attention to every patient, taking time to listen and understand their unique situation and medical needs so that I can provide compassionate and comprehensive care.
UCHealth is a system with demonstrated excellence in caring for patients with the whole spectrum of surgical diseases. From both minor and major elective procedures to trauma and emergency care, UCHealth provides comprehensive and professional, patient-oriented care. We strive to keep pace with the latest advancements in medicine and technology to provide up-to-date and high-quality surgical services. We value teamwork and believe in a balanced professional and personal life.
Why did you get in this profession?
It was a career that offered complexity, lifelong learning, and an opportunity to impact people’s lives.
I enjoy outdoor activities: running, cycling, backpacking, camping, kayaking, fishing, etc.
My wife’s name is Erin. We have a toddler-aged daughter named Harper. I volunteer with medical missions abroad when I have the opportunity.
