Western Rockies Eye Center, P.C. 2460 Patterson Rd Unit 2 Grand Junction, CO 81505 Get Directions

Care Philosophy

I have worked hard over the years to prepare myself to be the best possible eye physician and surgeon I can to help you in any way possible. However, I equally appreciate the great trust instilled in a physician when a patient has vision difficulties and comes for help. I promise not to take that trust for granted and will always work hard to earn and maintain your confidence in me, as well as with everyone else involved in your care.

Biography

I grew up in Utah and now practice general ophthalmology in Grand Junction, CO. My wife Carie and I have three beautiful girls we are blessed with and plan to raise in the grand valley. I am excited to meet you and take care of your medical and surgical eye care needs.
