About MeI practice in otolaryngology, which focuses on ear, nose and throat health. I specialize in rhinology, an area of medicine emphasizing the nose and sinus conditions. My specialties include sinus surgery and endoscopic skull base surgery.
My goal is to deliver therapy that is tailored to each individual patient. I believe in engaging each patient to achieve this goal. I seek to first identify an accurate diagnosis and then recommend the best form of therapy for that patient.
I enjoy the people I work with at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. I appreciate the positive atmosphere and dedication to excellent patient care. These are qualities that are exhibited at all times at Ohio State.
When I'm not on the job I take time to relax with my family, attend Ohio State football games and enjoy the outdoors. I also really enjoy playing the guitar.

Consulting and Related Relationships
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
