My clinical focuses include the diagnosis and management of stable coronary and peripheral artery disease as well as the acute management of heart attacks.

Care Philosophy
I treat cardiovascular and peripheral vascular disease with a patient centered approach. My goal is to listen and understand an individual person's values such that we can choose the best treatment path that aligns with their individual goals. This includes through lifestyle changes as well as medical or percutaneous intervention when needed.

Personal Interests
My time away from the hospital is devoted to wife, two boys, and a needy labrador. I enjoy cycling, hiking, skiing, and all things Colorado.
