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.
