About Me

As a hepatologist at Ohio State, I specialize in treating patients with hepatitis, liver cirrhosis and other liver diseases. I believe in providing my patients with comprehensive and individualized care. My patient care philosophy is centered on honesty and education. I make sure to provide my patients with honest opinions and plenty of education on their conditions and treatment options.

I enjoy helping patients to manage their conditions and any day-to-day issues that arise as a result. It’s incredibly rewarding to have the opportunity to develop long-term relationships with my patients.

My favorite part about working here at Ohio State is really patient care. I spend the majority of my time working with patients and it’s the area where I find the most enjoyment.

When I’m not working, I like to spend time with my family and enjoying the outdoors.

Dr. Hanje is truly an amazing physician. He literally put off a family commitment to see me AS A FIRST TIME PATIENT during a very serious, significant sickness I had this summer. His care for my illness, likewise, was effective and put me quickly on the path to recovery.
