Practice Setting

I am a professor Family Medicine at Creighton University School of Medicine, have a large practice of folks living with HIV, and enjoy teaching our Family Medicine residents and our Creighton Medical students HIV care.

Unique Opportunities

Patient Pool

I see 12 to 30 patients a day, on any given day 2 to 10 live with HIV. My team is very committed to justice and equity: we agitate for and advocate for an inclusive and kind community.

Experience

REsidency training in Family Medicine was at Rush University in Chicago, and in 1985 as an intern I remember the compassion and fear of caring for folks with HIV (remembering back then the blood test and virus name were just being discerned)
