A CU Medicine provider.
It is very important to me that my patients feel they are receiving the best care. Therefore, all appointments are 30 minutes and I give my personal email to my patients. I want to be there, if they need me.

- Research interest for patients
I feel incredibly privileged to do what I do and I love it: patient care, research and education. Believe it or not, these three pillars exist more together than they do apart. My research interests are in obesity, pre diabetes and type 2 diabetes. My projects range from identifying communicable/infectious diseases as complications of diabetes to building a workflow and disease state optimization tool for chronic weight management into EPIC (our electronic health record). Everything I do comes back to patient care, so I take the time to educate my patients the same way I do other doctors. I think everyone really likes that!
