    Clinical Interests

    Bob was born and raised in Kentucky, where he attended college and medical
    school. After receiving his M.D., he and his wife, Roxanne, came to Denver
    for his Internal Medicine Residency training. He soon became captivated
    by the majestic outdoors of Colorado, the warmth and openness of its people,
    and its stimulating combination of a high energy, but laid-back, atmosphere.
    He left briefly to complete training in Critical Care Medicine at Oklahoma
    University, but soon returned to complete Sleep and Pulmonary Training
    at National Jewish Health. He spent the next 20 years in Denver, raising
    his family and pursuing a career in academic medicine. However, in 2006
    he realized that his true career satisfaction came primarily from patient
    care. He therefore left academic medicine and opened Colorado Sleep &
    Pulmonary in the Uptown area of Denver. He has since remained busy evaluating
    and treating patients with both sleep and pulmonary disorders. His strong
    commitment remains to use evidence-based principles of medical practice
    in the daily care of his patients. Although he now focuses primarily upon
    patient care, he has managed to complete several clinical research projects
    and to author a few chapters and research papers.

    Physician Bio

    Bob and Roxanne live west of Denver in Morrison, where he tries to spend his free time outdoors, including hiking and snow shoeing. He also loves to attend summer concerts at Red Rocks Amphitheater and to get away to the mountain communities when time permits. His 2 grown children, Molly and Jonathan, both live and work in Denver, and he is delighted to be able to spend quality time with both his family and friends. After 30 years in Denver, not a day goes by without the realization of how fortunate he is to live and work in Colorado.
