I grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico with my younger brother. I decided to go far away for college and graduated with a Mechanical Engineering degree from Brown University in 1991. I had always planned on pursuing a life in medicine and thus moved from Providence to Chicago to attend Northwestern University Medical School (graduating in 1995) and from there to Royal Oak, Michigan for an OB/GYN residency at William Beaumont Hospital (completed in 1999). During my clinical rotations I had found “it” in the specialty of obstetrics and gynecology – a great mix of medicine and surgery, the chance to help patients of all ages, but most of all, a specialty where many of your patients are seeing you for a happy reason.
I decided to not subspecialize and do a fellowship as I enjoy the full scope of obstetrics and gynecology. I have practiced full-time and full-scope since finishing my residency in 1999, and I have practiced 11 of those 17 years in Colorado. I am certified by the American Board of Obstetrics and Gynecology and I am a Fellow of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists.
Outside of the Women’s Clinic, my time is spent mostly with my family. I have two daughters, both in college, both at Brown (a senior and a sophomore) – I thought they were supposed to take less of your time when they move away. I coach high school soccer for my son’s team. And somewhere in there I find quality time to spend with my wonderful wife of 23 years.
