I am thrilled to be working at the Denver Arthritis Clinic. I was raised in Colorado and love this state. After completing my rheumatology fellowship, I finished an additional research year studying the development of ankylosing spondylitis through interactions with the bacteria in the gut (microbiome) and the human immune system. The field of rheumatology is constantly evolving with new discoveries into how our diseases develop, as well as new treatment methods to improve our patient’s lives. I feel it is very important to stay up to date on all the cutting-edge new research to best serve my patients and provide exceptional care.
I am exceedingly thorough in providing comprehensive rheumatology care, and pride myself on listening to my patients. I look forward to being your trusted rheumatology advisor and will strive for you to feel heard as we work together to devise your treatment plan. I am a firm believer in the doctor-patient relationship being a mutual one, and one of my greatest skillsets is listening while being the biggest possible advocate for my patient on how they would like to approach their disease. Given that rheumatologists tend to form long lasting relationships with patients, my tactic is to get to know my patients well and really work with them to best manage their concerns.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my incredible wife, daughter, 3 cats, and our dog. I like spending time in the Colorado sunshine doing outdoor activities in the city and in the mountains.
