About Me

I’m a family physician and enjoy the vast variety of patients and conditions that this field brings. Over the course of my career, I have developed a special interest in preventive medicine and performing in-office skin procedures.

I take a comprehensive approach to patient care and include the patient in the decision-making and diagnostic process. I enjoy helping patients thoroughly understand their condition, and encourage them to engage in healthy lifestyles that promote their well-being.

Working for Ohio State motivates me to keep up to date on the latest medical research and guidelines. My work here allows me to treat a diverse patient population, and to share my passion for medicine by teaching medical students and the community I treat.

When I’m away from work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends as well as participating in any outdoor activity.

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.
