What is your care philosophy?
I believe in treating the whole person. There are many aspects that go into a patient’s health not just a disease. That involves the patient, their family and loved ones, in turn the community. Everyone is struggling with something; I believe that my purpose is to help alleviate some of that burden, even if it just means listening. I do my best to treat every patient as I would like my family to be treated.
What are your personal interests?
I enjoy spending time with my wife and daughter. They are my world. I am big on family so we spend a great deal of free time with our families; (I come from a large family where there are 5 sister, 3 brothers; my wife has a sister and brother in-law). We typically go hiking or go to the gym and rock climb. I enjoy playing chess with my daughter. We also love all types of puzzles. I enjoy teaching my daughter about all types of gardening and botany. We plant things in our outdoor garden, hydroponics/aquaponics and NFT system. I’ve never been big on sports, but my family is and I will enjoy the occasional Broncos game with them. I enjoy snowboarding or just going camping.
What is your personal mission statement?
To Cure sometimes, to Treat often, and to Care always.
