Clinical Interests
My clinical interests include treatment of multiple cancer types including GI, lung, breast, CNS, sarcoma, and head and neck cancers with a specific focus on the application of state of the art treatment techniques including stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT).

Care Philosophy
I strive to provide the best care for my patients. I believe in treating the person as a whole, taking every aspect of a patient’s body and health into consideration during diagnosis and treatment. My practice is located at Memorial Hospital in Colorado Springs, but I am on the faculty of the University of Colorado School of Medicine and work in close collaboration with my specialist colleagues on the Anschutz Medical Campus.
