I would describe myself as patient-centric. My role, as I see it, is to be a healthcare advisor – I am not a dictator. Together, we decide the path forward. I give the patients options, and they choose. I do my best to be a good listener, educator and motivator. It is important to me to offer guidance without judgment. I think my previous patients would describe me as knowledgeable and compassionate with a matter-of-fact common sense approach. I think, and hope, people find me relatable and my practice style refreshing. I personally don’t like seeing a provider where I feel like a number, so I refuse to practice that way. Through the years I have learned that everyone has a story. I think getting to know my patients is essential to build trust which is the foundation of any good patient-provider relationship.
I am married to Jennifer Moran, a nurse practitioner with UCHealth in Timnath. Together with our three boys we moved to Colorado from Iowa in 2018. We left a very busy medical practice in order to set roots in a place we have always loved. I was in the Air Force stationed in Mildenhall, England and spent a lot of time in the Middle East. I am very grateful for my time in the service. I was able to see a lot and came back to the United States with a deeper appreciation and love for this country. I love sports. My boys all played baseball and I coached baseball for 13 years. I am a huge Iowa Hawkeye and Pittsburgh Steeler fan.
