- 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 a medical oncologist focusing on the treatment of gastrointestinal and lung cancers as well as experimental drug development.
I love being part of a team and want to be true partner in your cancer care. At the University of Colorado Cancer Center, we are able to bring the absolute best science, technology and multidisciplinary expertise to the clinic. As important, I hope to bring clear communication and compassion that you so deserve in your care. It is truly a privilege for me to be a physician serving cancer patients.
In my spare time, I enjoy trying to stay in shape (I know, that sounds crazy!) and most sports, especially football. I have two beautiful daughters and enjoy travel and activities at my church.
