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!

Information for Referring Providers

Clinical Interests for Referring Providers
I see patients with Inherited metabolic diseases. I also see patients in the multidisciplinary mitochondrial clinic. My particular interest is in neurometabolic disorders in particular nonketotic hyperglycinemia and pyridoxine dependent epilepsy, but also leukodystrophies and other neurometabolic conditions. My other particular interest is in disorders of mitochondrial energy metaobolism including disorders of the respiratory chain, Krebs cycle, pyruvate dehydrogenase and of disorders of fatty acid oxidation and metabolism. My clinical laboratory provides mitochondrial diagnostic testing.

Research Interest for Referring Providers
I am interested in neurometabolic diseases that causes seizures, in particular in non-ketotic hyperglycinemia. I study the genetic basis, the clinical spectrum, the prediction of outcome including the relation between genotype and phenotype, the pathogenesis in animal models and human patients and the development of new treatments for this condition. I am also interested in pyridoxine dependent epilepsy and related metabolic causes of seizures. View my research website on non-ketotic hyperglycinemia:
