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!

I believe in providing optimal care for lymphoma patients, that is based on an integration of research-based evidence, clinical competence, and the patient values and preferences.
Following completion of medical school in Kurdistan Region of Iraq, Dr. Jasem came to the United States as a Fulbright Scholar and pursued a master's degree in public health/epidemiology at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. Meanwhile, he re-qualified his medical degree and conducted research, both locally and internationally, involving the health needs assessment of the underserved and refugee populations. He later pursued an internship in internal medicine at The Ohio State University, residency in internal medicine at the University of Colorado, and fellowship in hematology at Johns Hopkins University.
In his free time, Dr. Jasem enjoys hiking, soccer, listening to classic oriental music; and translating and publishing history, political, and scientific books from English to Arabic and Kurdish.
