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
My clinical interests include improving the quality of life and well-being of people living with serious illness.
This physician treats inpatients only and does not make office appointments.
I strive to provide the best care for my patients and their loved ones. I believe in learning about each patient as a person in addition to their illness, their values and priorities, and matching what matters most to a person with treatment options to individualize the care of each person.
In my spare time, I enjoy mountain biking.
I am dedicated to improving the health care and well-being of people living with serious illness. I help to inform the community about palliative care and improving the quality of life of our patients and their loved ones.
I do public speaking on various topics to improve the well-being and quality of life of people living with serious illness.
