"I enjoy being part of a symphony of providers and staff members who see patients through an array of difficult cardiac issues."
Board certified Interventional Cardiology
My grandfather practiced medicine in North Dakota for 40 years. His dedication to his patients inspired many, including me. With a collaborative, evidence-based, and patient-oriented model of care, Kaiser Permanente aims to provide the highest quality care in the United States. My goal is to provide comprehensive cardiovascular care emphasizing a strong patient/physician relationship both in the acute setting and in the setting of clinic-based continuous care. My specific medical interests include comprehensive cardiovascular care, coronary artery disease and coronary interventions, and structural/valvular heart disease and interventions. I enjoy being part of a symphony of providers and staff members who see patients through an array of difficult cardiac issues. I have received innovation awards for promoting a team approach to patients with complex heart disease. Our team performed many of the first transcatheter heart valve procedures in East King County.
I was born in North Dakota and spent much of my life in the Midwest. I completed my medical training at the University of Colorado in Denver in 2008. Subsequently, I moved to the Seattle area where I have been since. I have a wonderful wife and two social and energetic children.
My family and I enjoy skiing together, locally and in Canada, where my wife is from. We also enjoy local getaways to the Washington coast and Lake Chelan. I stay healthy by jogging, bicycling, and circuit train five days per week.
