To protect patients, visitors and health care workers, we have implemented the following procedures:
- Non-urgent medical appointments should be rescheduled or converted to telehealth visits.
- Any patient checking in must tell staff and ask for a mask if they have: A fever, cold symptoms (cough, sore throat, runny nose, shortness of breath); Flu symptoms (fever, chills, body aches, etc.).
- Anyone under 16 years of age NOT being seen as a patient is restricted from visiting any area.
- Visitor restrictions are in place. Please call to inquire about exceptions.

Clinical Interest for Patients
I am interested in hospital medicine: common pediatric illnesses, such as flu and dehydration; infectious diseases of the blood, skin, lungs and kidneys; respiratory illness; chronic illnesses, such as diabetes and asthma; and recovery from surgery or injury.
I feel very honored to meet families and children in a very difficult time when their child is sick. I enjoy the relationship I establish with patients and their families in these circumstances, and it is always a joy to see kids get better and go home.
I enjoy road biking, scuba diving, traveling, hiking, waterskiing, skiing, crossfit, and walking my dog, Boulder.
I volunteered for a week in Haiti May 2010 after the earthquake. I plan to do more volunteer work similar to this in the future.
