For those of you that are fortunate enough to have insurance, allow me to help you think about your healthcare dollars in a different light. Here is an example: Let’s say that your co-pay for […]

  • We are a community

    I love living in a small town. Actually, Broomfield is not a small town but rather a big town/city with a small town feel. So many of my patients are like family to me. The relationships I form with each patient is an important one. We are connected. That being said, I am not so […]

  • Patients are like family

    Really. Its true. I have now been practicing for 7 years and have been lucky enough to consider many of my patients part of an extended family. I hope they can see that when they come in. Maybe I am a little over the top sometime. I can’t think of many days that go by […]

    During my day, I have the wonderful pleasure of getting to meet about 15 unique people every day, some days its more, some less, depending on the ratio of NEW to EXISTING patients.
