About Me

As a primary care physician, I specialize in care for the entire spectrum of life from newborn to end of life. I believe that health means something different to a lot of people and that health is made up of the social, psychological and biological all wrapped into one. To treat a person fully, I provide care that encompasses all three areas.

I’m passionate about listening to a patient’s concerns and coming to a shared decision on how best to treat each individual so they can enjoy the quality of life they deserve.

I love that Ohio State provides a space for everyone, regardless of background or situation, and that we can all learn from each other and work with world-class multispecialties to create a plan that is in the best interest of the patient.

In my spare time, I enjoy hiking, reading books, traveling to new places and hidden local spots, and spending time with my family and friends creating memories.
