I desire to spend quality time with my patients. I enjoy taking the time to engage in conversation and understand my patients likes, dislikes and what they hope to achieve from our time together. I have grown tired of practicing medicine according to the corporate model of efficiency where you only get to spend 5 minutes with a patient and then have to move on to the next room because a bureaucrat thinks that that is the best way to maximize profits.
I have opened a concierge internal medicine practice where I can spend as much time with my patients as they need. We will sit down together after I have made you a cup of coffee or offered you a bottle of water and discuss what you would like without the pressure of time. When you call, you actually get my cell phone. You won't have to go through a receptionist or a nurse just to be told that you can be seen in a week.
I value your time and will work around your schedule.
Please give me a call if you want to be treated like a VIP.
Was was born in Loma Linda, California and my parents moved us to Fort Collins in 1968. We moved quite often and I knew every kid from one end of town to the other. I graduated from Poudre High School in 1984. I then did my undergraduate studies at the University of Northern Colorado. From there I attended the American University of the Caribbean in Plymouth, Montserrat. I then did my residency in Internal Medicine at Berkshire Medical Center in Pittsfield, Massachusetts. I had volunteered for the US Air Force during my residency, and I went on active duty immediately after completion of my residency. I served as the Chief of the Internal Medicine/ Cardiopulmonary element at MacDill AFB in Tampa, Florida. One of my claims to fame is that Storming' Norman Schwartzkopf, was my patient. After separating from the Air Force, I returned to Colorado with my wife and kids. We settled in Fort Morgan where we had a private practice for 8 years. During that time, I was the Chief of Staff at Colorado Plains Medical Center. After the Affordable Care Act passed congress, we sold the practice to Banner Health and worked for them for the next three years. I then struck out on my own for the next 5 years working as a hospitalist at various hospitals around Colorado. I still work at the VA in Grand Junction to give a little something back to the veterans who gave so much so that we can enjoy being free. Traveling to several different hospitals has been very gratifying but now I want to be at home with my wife and kids and take care of a select group of patients in the Douglas county region. I would also like to help out more at our church. I feel like the Lord has given me a gift and that I am to share it. I can't take care of everyone, but I will give my very best to those who entrust their healthcare to me.
