About Me

I specialize in primary care sports medicine. I enjoy treating the entire athlete/patient. I have a special emphasis in interventional and diagnostic musculoskeletal ultrasound.

I believe in providing each patient or athlete with individualized care. I want to help the patient be an active participant in his or her treatment. My goal for patients is to help them return to their sport as quickly and as safely as possible.

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I enjoy working with Ohio State’s athletic department as a team physician. I also enjoy teaching and interacting with fellows, residents and medical students.

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, spending time outdoors and with my wife and our two dogs.

I also hold the following academic title:
