Background

Clinical Interest for Patients

My clinical interests include caring for patients with serious illnesses, focusing on improving quality of life. This physician treats inpatients only and does not make office appointments.

Research Interest for Patients

My research interests include prognostication, pain management in serious illness, advance care planning and palliative care in rural settings.

Personal Interests

In my spare time, I enjoy mountain biking, skiing and snow shoeing.

Care Philosophy

I strive to provide the best care for my patients and their loved ones. I believe in learning about each patient as a person (not just "an illness"), their values and priorities, and matching those values/priorities to treatment options to individualize the care of each patient.

Volunteer Activities

I am dedicated to improving the health care of people with serious illnesses. I help to inform the community about palliative care and improving the quality of life of our patients and their loved ones.
