COVID-19 Guidelines

CU Doctors are here for you!
Our clinics are open and able to serve you during this time for urgent in-person visits as well as virtual health services. Please call our clinics directly to schedule an appointment for both in person and virtual health.

Our number one priority is the health and safety of our patients, their family members, as well as our health care team. To honor this commitment we have implemented the following procedures:

  • Non-urgent medical appointments should be converted to telehealth visits or rescheduled if telehealth is not feasible.
  • Please bring your own face mask or covering to wear. Patients checking in must tell staff if they have: A fever, cold symptoms (cough, sore throat, runny nose, shortness of breath); Flu symptoms (fever, chills, body aches, etc.).
  • Adult patients may be allowed one asymptomatic person (at least 17 years old) for support; however, we reserve the right to deem a support person unnecessary at any time.
  • Pediatric patients may be allowed one asymptomatic adult (i.e. parent, guardian) for support.
  • For pediatric patients, please check the Children's Hospital Colorado website for updated COVID-19 related patient information.

Please call us about your current health care concerns. Please take care in following current public health guidelines. Please visit the Colorado COVID-19 website, for more information.

Thank you for doing your part to help keep everyone safe and healthy!

Care Philosophy
I am passionate about taking care of the active individual of all ages. When a competitive or recreational athlete incurs an injury, I relish the opportunity to provide meticulous care in guiding them back to their desired activity through both my operative expertise and my non-operative skills. My devotion to the care of my patients is evident in the following values that guide my practice as well as my colleagues, the team of sports medicine physicians at the University of Colorado: Excellence, Integrity, Teamwork, Professionalism, Respect, Passion, Patient-centered, Leadership, Positivity, Innovation, Compassion, Inspiration. Our mission at CU Sports Medicine is to define and deliver exceptional evidence-based care for the athlete in everyone. We are committed to providing the highest quality professional and ethical care to all patients through the integration of comprehensive education and exceptional musculoskeletal research combined with outstanding care of the patient.

Personal Interests
I continue to maintain a very active lifestyle with my family. I enjoy the activities I grew up with in Colorado including hiking, cycling, climbing and skiing. This carries over into my unbridled dedication of returning patients to their desired activity/sport.
