Biography

"Although a specialty physician, I believe that I can best care for patients when I know about many aspects of their lives - social, educational, professional, family, religious and personal. I have a strong personal belief in natural healing and the benefits of exercise. When possible, I prefer to start with non-drug treatments."

He completed his fellowship in pulmonary and critical care medicine also at the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
