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 a Physician Assistant for the University of Colorado’s Neurology Supportive and Palliative Care clinics. These team-based clinics are open to any patient or family affected by a neurologic or neurosurgical condition. The goals of clinic is to improve the quality of life and reduce suffering for patients and families by helping them with difficult to treat medical symptoms (e.g. pain, fatigue), psychiatric symptoms (e.g. depression), psychological issues (e.g. guilt, grief), caregiver support, spiritual well-being and planning for the future. My specific clinical interests include support of family and caregivers and design of group visit modules for patients and families. I also perform botox injections for sialorrhea (excessive drooling in Parkinson's Disease) and care of baclofen pumps for MS Center.
I am very interested in care and treatment of entire family coping with chronic neurologic and neurosurgical conditions. I value close communication with patients and families. My role in neuropalliative care program is close follow-up of our patients and I strive to make sure our care is always patient and family-centered.
