About Me

As a family medicine physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I specialize in disease management, preventive medicine, pediatrics, gynecology, contraception education and women’s health. I treat patients with a myriad of conditions including anxiety, depression, hypertension, diabetes, arthritis and osteoarthritis. I also provide joint injections, mole removal, pap smears and endometrial biopsies, along with other minor procedures.

I have always wanted to work in family medicine and am happy to have found my calling in life. I love my job and my patients; it’s a privilege to take care of patients and their families. I enjoy taking care of the entire patient, not just treating symptoms, and providing as much preventative care as possible. I’m very interested in how family dynamics can affect a person’s health.

My favorite part about working at Ohio State is the wealth of resources available, including a wide range of specialists for my patients. Additionally, The Department of Family Medicine provides great support for my professional goals. I also enjoy helping medical students throughout the process of medical school, especially nontraditional students.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and cooking.
