About Me

As a physiatrist, I am passionate about cancer rehabilitation. I have found a true privilege in to work with cancer survivors and their families. It’s very rewarding to play a positive role in the process of their recovery. Even after a successful treatment, it can be very difficult for the survivor and his or her family as they face the functional challenges posed by cancer and it’s treatments.

I strive to assemble and facilitate the right interdisciplinary team to help my patients achieve their goals because I believe that by aligning with the goals of patients and their families, we will be more successful in providing treatment and helping make their futures brighter and more productive.

There is a strong innovative and collaborative spirit across all of the departments here at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. I really enjoy working in this team-based environment with my focused and dedicated colleagues.

In my free time I enjoy attending Ohio State football games, local festivals and traveling. I particularly enjoy attending live musical performances, being my musician-wife’s “roadie” and occasionally performing a little music myself, usually tucked away in the tenor section of a choir.

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.
