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!

Clinical Interest for Patients
I am passionate about treating all spinal disorders. Some of my specific clinical and research interests include: Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery;
Adult Spinal Deformity;
Proximal Junctional Kyphosis;
Degenerative Conditions of the Spine;
No two patients are the same which is why I firmly believe in a team mentality when it comes to your spine condition. Your specific goals and expectations are important and I believe that nonsurgical options in the treatment of neck or back pain are important and effective. However, when it comes to surgery, I enjoy discussing the surgical options including traditional and minimally invasive methods depending on individualized factors. My desire is for my patients to be actively involved in their spine health and to work closely in achieving their goals.
I enjoy spending time with my wife, 2 daughters and son. I am a Colorado native and love the outdoor access that we have in our beautiful state.
