About Me

I’m a board certified dermatologist with more than 10 years of experience treating patients of all ages. It’s been great to see the patients with whom I’ve established a connection keep coming back for quality care. Working at the Ohio State Outpatient Care Gahanna has shown me the impact that getting timely, efficient care without a wait can have on a patient’s overall healthcare experience. Here, I’m part of a friendly, compassionate team that will do everything in our power to help our patients get back to better health. I love getting to practice clinical medicine and perform dermatology procedures, even more so when I can combine those clinical responsibilities with mentoring medical students and residents.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my children, gardening, cooking and reading.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
