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
Being diagnosed with cancer is a life-changing event, affecting both patients and their families. No one should walk this path alone. It is my honor and privilege to accompany my patients on their cancer journey, and to become a part of their lives in a very special way. In my clinical practice, I focus on the care of patients with breast cancer. I strive to provide expert, prompt, individualized and compassionate care for every patient and family. My philosophy in taking care of patients is, first of all, to listen to them and keep in very close communication throughout the course of treatment. We work together as a team. I help my patient in understanding their diagnosis, and together we design the best plan of action. By working with each patient, their family, and a group of my expert colleagues (surgeons, radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists), we can design the most comprehensive treatment plan, that could include both standard treatments and emerging therapies in the form of clinical trials. We live in an exciting time of many outstanding scientific discoveries in cancer diagnostics and therapy. My goal is to bring together all the scientific advances and resources of a cutting-edge cancer center to my patients.

Personal Interests
In my spare time, I enjoy reading books and being outdoors. I love skiing, hiking, biking and backpacking with my husband and three children.
