About Me

My practice is hepatology and transplant hepatology. I believe in providing my patients with an in-depth, comprehensive review of their liver disease. This allows me to discover the best strategies to manage their disease.

What I enjoy most about working at Ohio State’s Wexner Medical Center is the ability to help patients with liver disorders, including pre and post liver transplant patients. I’m surrounded by physicians and staff with similar goals.

In my spare time, I enjoy being outdoors, attending Ohio State football games, reading and relaxing with my family.
