It is my aim to always do the right thing. When it comes to caring for my patients, I keep your needs as the center of focus. I also believe that good partnership with the whole care team accomplishes more than an individual’s efforts.
UCHealth has documented excellence in trauma and emergency surgery with quality partners. It is a system that continues to strive for excellence and the administration to support these goals.
Beyond patient care, I enjoy everything outdoors: skiing, rock climbing, back packing, fly fishing and cycling. I also volunteer with Boy Scouts. I am married to my wife Gina, who is also a physician, and we have three sons.
