Getting to know Nicholas
I chose family medicine, primarily because it is the last remaining field in medicine where you truly develop a relationship with patients to live healthier lives. As medicine has become more and more specialized, too often you will ask a question and that specialist will dodge or evade, because whatever that problem may be doesn’t fit into their small little medical area of expertise. Family medicine is different – we take all comers, with all questions and concerns. I went into family medicine because of “the doorknob question.” The questions that come when I’m halfway out the door and someone feels comfortable enough to say, “also I was wondering if I could ask you about…” –Too often when you meet with a specialist, if you ask that question, the answer will be “you should ask your PCP about that.” I got into family medicine because I love the relationships you build through being charged with the overall health of an individual, not just a specific rash, sprain, or illness. 

Medicine is constantly changing. When I began my search for a clinic to call home, I wanted to work at a practice that not only new how to navigate those challenging and changing landscapes, but one that embraced them. CVCH is a mission driven organization; and within that mission is that we strive toward excellence – that we are a leader in our field. At CVCH I feel confident that we will continue to be at the forefront of healthcare for the foreseeable future. Put that environment in a beautiful setting on the edge of the mountains? Sold.

As a native Washingtonian, I’ve always loved the outdoors. You can find me on my bike(s), hiking or climbing, or heading up to Mission Ridge in the winter. I also really enjoy projects around the house – my wife and I are preparing our home for our first child, and It’s been incredibly fun working and improving our home to ensure we are ready.
