I like to get to know the patients that I see – who they are, what they do and what their expectations are. I strive to be open and honest which is not always easy in cancer care. I share as much information as I can in an understandable way and believe that the more informed a person is the better.
I have two active young sons who play basketball and baseball year round. If we are not shooting hoops together we are practicing baseball or going to a game. I ski and like to work with my hands. I grew up on a rocky old ranch near Boulder where we go every weekend to cut hay, fix fences and try to grow some wine grapes.
