About Me

I try to provide the best medical care possible to all my patients. I listen to patients and respond to their wishes and concerns in developing a treatment plan.

I specialize in stroke treatment. I became interested in stroke treatment as an intern when I mentored with a stroke neurologist. I’m also interested in the genetic and hereditary aspects of stroke.

I’m involved in a number of clinical trials that relate to stroke treatment and secondary prevention of stroke.

My favorite part about working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is the intellectual stimulation of my colleagues.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, reading and watching movies.
