Review from Justin Ley, Health Assessment Product Mananger, OptumHealth (colleague)

 “David is a fantastic person to work with. He is smart, funny and very effective. He consistently knows what the project needs and rather than wait around or ask for permission, he just does what needs done and looks for the next thing to do. He is very focused on clearing up ambiguity in order to make others more effective. Our projects have a much better chance of success because of David and in the future I will try to be on the same project as him for that reason.”

“I have had great pleasure getting to know David personally and professionally over the last year while working on The Roundtable. David is a Doer. David demands results but understands there are many different routes to get there; He is willing to exhaust all potential avenues while refusing to except mediocrity. I would recommend David to anyone who is looking for an individual that seeks out challenges and brings a unique design-centric mentality to problem solving. David does not fear failure which is an invaluable trait that many do not possess. I hope to work with David for a long time to come.”

Comment from IT Manager at UnitedHealth Group, 2011

"The quality of the workbook data (a previous concern and contributor to extra labor), has looked much better and David’s been great." (Note: David took over platform data analysis/management Fall 2010)

Comments taken from 2010 professional review at University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview:

...David has worked very hard on the unit as well as system-wide with the role-out of electronic medical records. He has trained many staff on our unit and throughout the system. 

...is a conscientious and professional member of the team. David is always eager to try new things and give an extra effort if that will mean improvement. He is fun to work with and is serious about his job.
6AE and Fairview are very lucky to have David as an employee.

Comments taken from 2008 professional review at University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview:

David carries himself with confidence and professionalism. David has a patient-centered approach and does a good job engaging with patients...

...is always willing to do what needs to be done. He demonstrates initiative and is a solution-focused team member. Many staff on the unit appreciate him for his sense of humor and dependability.
...does not shy away from patients that may be behaviorally difficult to manage. He is calm, pleasant, and fair - which is helpful in conflict resolution.
