I originally approached medicine as a scientist but quickly fell in love with taking care of people. When my patients come to see me, many feel as though they are coming to visit an old friend. We work together to resolve their health concerns; I don’t go in with any preconceived ideas about what my patients need, instead I believe that truly listening to them is the most effective way to find solutions.
My interest in computers led to my roles as chairman of the Information Technology Committee and chief medical informatics officer at Revere Health, and I played a key role in our transition to an electronic health record in 2004. I am proud to belong to an organization with such outstanding providers where our patients can have the full range of their health problems treated.
I have always enjoyed the outdoors and have developed a love for photography. In fact, as you walk the halls of the main Provo campus and other Utah County offices, you’ll notice that most of the pictures hanging on the walls are mine.
A provider's patient satisfaction rating is determined by patient responses to questions from the Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (CAHPS) survey, administered by NRC Health.
Patients today have more choices than ever, including where, how and from whom they get care. That's why Revere Health believes it's important to provide access to transparent information, empowering our patients to make knowledgable decisions about their healthcare.
CAHPS surveys are funded and overseen by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) within the United States Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
Patients receive the nine-question survey via email or phone call, and we publish provider ratings on Revere Health's website once he or she has at least 30 completed surveys.
