I practice in obstetrics and gynecology, specializing in maternal fetal medicine. My area of specialty involves treating patients with high-risk pregnancies.

My work includes prenatal care and diagnosis, especially fetal monitoring and treatment of fetal diseases and disorders. I provide diverse care, ranging from routine screening to treatment of pregnancy complications emphasizing fetal therapy.

Timely, effective and compassionate care are essential when we detect problems with a pregnancy. That can make a world of difference.

I believe in providing personalized care for my patients. This is especially important when they and their babies face significant challenges. My goal is to inform mothers about their health and their baby's health to optimize the pregnancy outcome for both mother and baby.

Working at Ohio State offers a wealth of resources and expertise partnering together to provide the best patient care.

When I'm not at work, I take time to relax with family.
