Care Philosophy
I strive to provide the individualized medical care that every child (especially a child with unique special healthcare needs) deserves in order to fully enjoy life.

Personal Interests
When I'm not taking care of kids in clinic, I love to spend time hiking in the mountains with my wife (Dr. Amy Feldman, who is a pediatric hepatologist at Children's Hospital Colorado) and our own 2 kids (Jack and Emma) strapped to our backs!

Volunteer Activities
I volunteer my time serving as an elected member of the Colorado Medicaid Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee to improve medication safety for all Colorado children.

Public Speaking
I enjoy speaking about the topics of 1) pediatric pharmacoepidemiology and drug safety and 2) the clinical care of epidermolysis bullosa (EB) patients.

Research Interest for Referring Providers
Dr. James Feinstein is an Assistant Professor in the Division of General Pediatrics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Dr. Feinstein has trained as a health services researcher and developed expertise with observational study design, large data analytic methods, secondary data analysis, and statistical programming. Dr. Feinstein has pursued a research career initially focused on palliative care and children with complex chronic conditions (CCCs). As Dr. Feinstein’s clinical roles have evolved to the outpatient care of children with CCCs and special medical needs, his research interests have also increasingly focused on the outpatient setting. Dr. Feinstein has begun assembling a research portfolio focused on outpatient medication safety and management for pediatric patients, specifically regarding children with CCCs. He authored a study quantifying outpatient adverse drug events associated with national emergency department visits, and has been working with Medicaid data to characterize patterns of medication exposure in infants and children. Dr. Feinstein’s long-term career goals are to improve medication safety and health outcomes for children with polypharmacy, with a focus on implementing and evaluating technology-based strategies to improve signal detection of adverse drug events in children with CCCs.
