Physician Profile


I chose to go into gastroenterology because I had a strong interest in the endoscopic technology in this field. As a physician, I most enjoy the daily interactions with patients, peer providers, nurses and hospital staff. I treat all my patients as I would want to be treated, and I find it vital to listen closely to what they are telling me. Without a patient’s communication, history, and story, I cannot provide meaningful care. Although originally from Texas, I moved here to be closer to my family and the mountains. I am involved in a variety of equestrian activities and also enjoy bicycling and water sports. I have three biological children who are grown, and I also have two adopted twin teenage girls.
