Care Philosophy

I come from a family of healers dating back more than 2000 years. I intend to honor that tradition by using advanced technology and developing new procedures to facilitate basic healing in a minimally invasive way. Time spent educating patients is well worth my efforts because patients' points of view are important. I listen because the partnership enhances my skills as a doctor and a person. Trust is a core value that is integral to healing. It must be earned at each encounter.

in Fort Lupton, CO |
I had extremely successful treatment for my CCSVI. He was excellent, and I believe he is one of the few doctors who use IVUS with the angioplasty.

One of the best. Treated my husband in 2011 for CCSVI.
