My practice is internal medicine, with a focus on gastroenterology. When working with my patients, I feel we are together in the same battle against the disease that is ailing them. I work with my patients to find the best strategy for diagnosis and to formulate a personalized treatment plan. This often includes using advanced therapeutic endoscopy.

I specialize in advanced therapeutic endoscopy with a focus on endoscopic ultrasound and endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP). These advanced procedures allow for a minimally invasive, “up close” evaluation and treatment of the disease.

What I enjoy most about working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is the opportunity to be involved in the care of patients using advanced endoscopic procedures. I also work to advance the quality of patient care through my research which is focused on endoscopic quality and outcomes.

In my spare time, I enjoy relaxing with my family, traveling, reading and being outdoors.
