Growing up in the Pacific Northwest, with two parents in healthcare, I remember being fascinated by medicine at a very early age. At every stop of my life's journey – college in Illinois, medical school in Oklahoma and residency training in Colorado – I've always found working with children to be most rewarding. And while I love being a pediatrician, I couldn't have done it without the support and sacrifice of my wonderful wife and our three children; I've learned more from them than any time spent in school.
The moment I decided to pursue a career in medicine, I knew I wanted to become a Pediatrician. A big heart, sensitivity, and intellectual curiosity are important traits in a Pediatrician that I have always valued in myself and my colleagues. I thoroughly love helping families through all the stages of childhood to foster the growth of healthy children and parents. I take a very collaborative approach to my practice.
It is a privilege for me to be an OB/GYN physician and see a wonderful variety of patients. In a given day, it's not unusual for me to perform surgeries, do a delivery, and see patients in the office. I enjoy meeting new patients and seeing patients I’ve cared for over the past fifteen years. I have been truly blessed to have a wonderful wife for twenty-six years, three healthy children, loving parents, and a dedicated staff at the office. My interests include playing a wide variety of sports, gardening, playing the trombone, and being an active member of 1st Presbyterian Church.
