Patient care should go beyond treating a disease. An informed patient can make knowledgable decisions in regards to his or her own treatment. I believe time should be spent with an individual to ensure an understanding is developed for appropriate care. Many diseases in endocrinology are life long, and having a physician who is willing to listen to ensure appropriate care is provided is the philosophy by which I practice.
Endocrinology is a field of many moving parts. My interest lies in the interaction of these moving parts. In college during my physiology course, the section on hormones and their interactions grabbed my attention and I have not looked back since.
I am married and we are happy to be in Colorado. Beyond caring for patients, I tend to gravitate toward outdoor activities such as hiking, running, biking and so on. Activities to get the blood pumping outdoors are always on the agenda. Cooking and baking are passions I also enjoy. I love to come up with meals based on what is left in the refrigerator at the end of the week.
