Care Philosophy
We strive to provide patient-focused, personalized, multi-disciplinary care for gastrointestinal (GI) cancers. Our specialized providers in Medical Oncology (chemotherapy and targeted therapies), Surgical Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Pathology, Molecular Pathology, Radiology, Interventional Radiology, Nuclear Medicine, Gastroenterology (both Hepatology and Interventional Endoscopy), Nutrition, and Integrative Medicine work together to achieve the best outcomes for our patients. We have weekly GI cancer tumor boards, where our specialists come together to discuss patients and patient care. In July 2011, I joined the University of Colorado School of Medicine faculty. I trained in internal medicine at the University of Colorado, where I also served as a Chief Medical Resident. I completed his fellowship training in medical oncology at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center and served as the Chief Medical Oncology Fellow in 2010. Currently, I serve as the Director of GI Medical Oncology at the University of Colorado Cancer Center, the Vice-Chair of the National Cancer Institute Colon Cancer Task Force, and on the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) Panel for Neuroendocrine Cancers.
