Arthritic and autoimmune conditions are serious medical problems that require careful monitoring and management to maintain a good quality of life for the patient and to minimize the chance of disability.  Whenever possible, I use the most current medical studies to guide the management of the patient’s condition.  However, I also feel that it is critical to understand the patient’s perspective on his or her problem and seek his or her input when developing the treatment plan.  I believe that this team oriented approach makes it possible to achieve the best possible outcome for the patient.

In addition to Denver Arthritis Clinic, I am an associate professor of clinical medicine at the University of Colorado-Denver where I enjoy educating the next generation of rheumatologists.

I am married and have two children.  My outside interests including spending time with my family, training and competing in triathlons and snowboarding.
