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.
