I try my best to combine my knowledge of medicine with the patients’ knowledge of themselves to help them achieve their health goals.

I specialize in perioperative internal medicine. This means helping people get safely through surgery by obtaining a thorough medical history, facilitating communication between caregivers and managing medical problems before and after surgery.

I am also certified in infectious diseases. I diagnose and treat infections and symptoms that have remained undiagnosed, despite previous evaluation. I enjoy helping people by being detailed and thorough and by working closely with other healthcare providers.

I am proud to be a doctor at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center because of the caring and quality that I see my colleagues providing to people every day.
