Robert rejoined Optum in our growing Urgent Care Clinic as a Physician Assistant in October 2014. He initially was part of the Optum Internal Medicine team at the old North Branch location between 1996 and 2000. Robert brings over 35 years experience as a Physician Assistant with him. He expanded his career while remaining local and has recently worked outside of Optum as a Physician Assistant for single-physician clinics specializing in many different areas such as dermatology, cosmetic procedures, allergy, asthma, and urgent care. Robert began his medical career while in the Army and received his PA through Creighton University in Fort Sam Houston, TX. During his time in the military, Robert has earned 4 overseas service ribbons, 3 Achievement Medals, 2 Commendation Medals and 4 Meritorious Service Medals among many others. Optum is proud to have him rejoin our team of outstanding providers!
When he’s not working in the Urgent Care Clinic, he enjoys spending time with his family. He has lived in Colorado Springs for 20 years and enjoys all of the nature Colorado has to offer such as hiking, bike riding, and skiing.
