I aim to provide the most thorough and individualized evaluation that I can, then combine that with more than a decade of experience and the most recent research / evidence-based medicine in order to quickly make the right diagnosis and plan. After that, we will work closely together to review all the treatment options and select the best path to get you sleeping and feeling well again. Even if the initial plan doesn’t work out as anticipated, I will continue to work with you until you feel better. It is amazing what a good night of sleep can do. I am frequently amazed by patients who are almost non-functional when we first meet and within a month of treatment, are completely normal.

I grew up in New England, went to school in upstate New York, then spent many years in practice in Northern Virginia / Washington DC. It has been a thrill to move to Colorado and join UCHealth. My wife is a nurse within the system, as well, and we have three young children and two mini schnauzers. In my spare time, I enjoy running, skiing and brewing.

I was looking for a well-organized, well-respected and strong organization to take my practice to the next level. I truly believe that UCHealth is the premier health care organization not only in Colorado, but also the surrounding states. Our sleep program is rapidly growing and progressive and has been the first in the Rocky Mountain West to offer novel treatments such as hypoglossal nerve stimulation therapy.

Clinical interest for patients

I love to treat all sleep disorders, but I especially enjoy working with sleep apnea patients. I have a particular interest in helping people adapt to CPAP even if they are struggling or have previously failed. My other interests include non-CPAP alternatives for sleep apnea such as hypoglossal nerve stimulation therapy (a novel minimally invasive surgical option), and advanced modes of non-invasive ventilation for patient with complex respiratory, cardiac and/or neurological problems.
