About Me

I believe that the most important part of the doctor-patient relationship is listening to patients and effective communication. I make every effort to ensure patients understand all aspects of the diagnosis and treatment plan during each visit.

I’m a neurologist with subspecialization in movement disorders. I'm passionate about my career because I’m dedicated to helping patients navigate the challenges of chronic disease, and I’m constantly rewarded by the improvements I can make in patients' lives.

I graduated from Harvard University with a degree in cognitive neuroscience. After that, I attended Yale University and received my Master of Public Health. I went to medical school at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, so it's especially rewarding for me to work here because I can give back and teach medical students and residents. Being at this academic institution also allows me to pursue collaborative research projects and provide patients with state-of-the-art care.
