There is more to caring for a patient than treating physical complaints. There are emotional and spiritual needs that can be just as important. I believe in treating the whole person. I am compassionately honest with discussions about my patients’ health. Patients should have a voice in the direction of their medical care, so I practice shared decision-making. I enjoy getting to know the whole family and walking beside them in their life journey. A patient’s time is just as valuable as mine, so I make every effort to keep on schedule. With that being said, I know every visit doesn’t fit perfectly into a pre-designated time slot, and I will take the necessary time to discuss sensitive concerns.

I moved to Colorado after practicing 19 years in a rural community in Iowa where I spent most of my time in an outpatient clinic while also taking care of hospitalized patients and emergency room patients. I was also involved in many leadership roles. I am married with three daughters; two are in college in Iowa and one is in high school here in the area. My wife is an elementary special education teacher.

Clinical interest for patients

I love the variety that family medicine has to offer. I enjoy seeing patients of all ages, from newborn to patients passing the 100-year mark. My special interests would include well child visits, well adult physicals, minor skin surgeries, joint injections and diabetic visits.
