I began working with an orthopedic spine surgeon part-time while in Colorado Springs. I found it to be very interesting and challenging at the same time, not only in the clinic, but also assisting in the operating room. That interest gradually evolved into my dedicated spine practice, which I really enjoy. Every patient I see gets 100% of my attention, to answer all their questions and develop a treatment plan for each one, so that each feels valued and heard during their appointment. Seeing my patients improve is the best part of my job.

    This is my second office visit in the past week. On each occasion I was told to arrive 15-30 minutes early which I did. Both times I wasn’t admitted to see doctor until 30 minutes after my appointment time. It’s very frustrating showing up early and then not being seen timely and having to wait 30 minutes after appointment to be seen. And then I waited another 15 minutes before doctor saw me. The care I received was helpful and the doctor and medical assistant were thorough and well mannered. However the waiting times make me want to find another provider.
