A CU Medicine provider.
I provide comprehensive care for liver diseases to my patients. This is done with a multidisciplinary team of hepatologists, surgeons, radiologists, and interventional radiologists to provide the highest quality of care. I focus on patient education and communication with the goal that my patients develop a deep understanding of their medical condition. I also strive to provide personalized care specific to each individual patient’s care goals.

- Clinical interest for patients
My clinical interests include providing care to patients with chronic liver disease including evaluation of patients for liver transplantation and providing post-transplant care. In addition, I perform endoscopy (upper GI endoscopy, colonoscopy) and liver biopsies.
- Research interest for patients
My research interests are focused on developing a better understanding of the immune system within the liver. My work focuses on understanding the effects of curing hepatitis C virus on the liver's immune system. In addition, we are studying how the liver responds to bacterial and viral infections to develop a better understanding of how these infections may exacerbate underlying chronic liver disease.
