About Me

I’m passionate about helping patients live healthier lives. Every patient is important to me and deserves to be treated as a friend, family member or trusted companion. I listen to my patients, help them accomplish their goals safely and advocate for them at every step. At our appointments, I help patients optimize their health for a safe pregnancy, preventing pregnancy or screening for gynecologic cancers or concerns. I’ll also help patients transition through menopause and improve their sexual health to help promote healthy relationships and families.

Teaching is one of the cornerstones of medicine. Through my academic roles at The Ohio State University College of Medicine, I have a direct hand in teaching the next generation of physicians to become compassionate healers and leaders. I teach on various topics — from improving the quality of health care, reducing health care disparities, female sexual problems, abnormal bleeding, menopause, contraception and more. I’m also the lead coach for the Advanced Health Systems Science Program, teaching medical students how to make our health care system better with quality improvement projects, team building and more. In addition, I’m the program director for the Learning Communities Program, which pairs medical students with faculty to help them make the professional transition into excellent physicians.

I’m excited to continue my research efforts at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. I’ve already written a research paper that made headlines in newspapers around the world, describing the effects of hormonal contraception on mental health. I’m also publishing papers on female sexual problems, helping patients quit smoking, teaching professionalism to medical students and more. Plus, I recently received a large grant from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) to study why people are hesitant to take vaccines and better understand how the immune system reacts to immunizations in pregnancy.

I spend my free time with family, including my wife and four children. I enjoy reading a good book, exercising and cooking healthy meals for my family.
