720-956-2900 Office


I grew up in Southern California and went to medical school in Manhattan.  Denver is a happy medium, where one can balance work with play.  Non-work interests include club Ultimate Frisbee, telemark skiing, and world travel.  My wife and I enjoy taking Samba (our dog) on hikes in the Colorado wilderness.


I dabble in research when I find some time.  My interests include residency education, practice improvement, and quality measures.  I enjoy going to conferences, especially in exotic locales such as Puerto Rico and Montreal.


I am Team Leader at the Westwood Family Health Center, which is one of the community health centers affiliated with Denver Health.  I enjoy working with a mainly Latino population and the urban poor.  The mission to serve the vulnerable and needy motivates me to be a great family physician.

I am Assistant Professor at the University of Colorado.  I supervise residents in the hospital (the Adult Family Medicine service and the L&D) and precept in the clinic (the Lowry Family Health Center).  I also give lectures during the Wednesday afternoon didactics and run the monthly resident Journal Club.  I enjoy working with residents and teaching; it is like going back to school!
