Care Philosophy
As a parent myself, I know how scary it can be to have a sick child. In my role as a Pediatric Emergency Medicine doctor, I want all parents who bring their children to me to know I'll listen to them and do everything I can to help their child during such a stressful time. In my administrative role as Associate Chief Medical Officer for Children's Hospital Colorado, my focus is on working collaboratively with our care team members to continuously look for ways to improve our system for the benefit of not only the patient, but also our health care team members. My focus is improving the quality of care provided, efficiency of patient movement in and out of our system, and creating an overall excellent patient-centered care experience.
