About Me

As a family medicine physician, I provide preventative care and disease management for patients of all ages and backgrounds, and am particularly interested in pediatrics and women's health. I treat patients with anxiety, arthritis, athletic injuries, depression and hypertension. Not only do I provide treatments for acute and chronic conditions, but I also educate and empower my patients to take an active role in their health and well-being.

I enjoy working at The Ohio State University because we’re able to offer excellent care and state-of-the-art treatments to our patients through our vast network of resources.

In my free time I enjoy cooking, exercising, reading, watching movies and spending time with my family.
