About Me

As a transplant nephrologist at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I specialize in kidney and pancreas transplantation. I believe in providing an individualized approach to patient care. I focus specifically on each of my patients’ individual needs while implementing goals to improve patient outcomes.

I enjoy working at The Ohio State University because of the collaborative and team environment and the many excellent specialists I am able to call my colleagues.

When I’m not working I enjoy relaxing with my family, reading, traveling and watching movies. I also like to spend time enjoying the outdoors and attending Ohio State football games.

Dr. Diez is my favorite doctor! He is knowledgeable, motivates me to get to my goals and is an all around great person. He also makes me feel at ease since I worry a lot about my health and have always hated going to doctors. I seriously got so lucky to have him as my Nephrologist. I know I am in good hands with him. Knowing I have him on my care team is very comforting and makes me confident that I'll be in good health for many years to come. I can't thank Dr. Diez for all that he has done for me!
