As a physician assistant, I specialize in sports medicine and orthopedic surgery, with a special focus on the knee. Some of the most common conditions I treat are knee injuries including meniscal tears, articular cartilage damage, anterior cruciate ligament tears, posterior cruciate ligament tears, medial collateral ligament tears, lateral collateral ligament tears, patellar and quad tendon ruptures and patellar instability. I take the time to meet with patients to ensure their needs are being met, and I encourage them to engage and ask questions concerning their condition. I am passionate about helping people achieve a happier, healthier and more active life.
I enjoy working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center because of the Buckeye culture and collaborative atmosphere. I am also happy to work alongside a number of amazingly talented individuals as a part of a team dedicated to ensuring high quality patient care.
In my free time I enjoy staying active and spending time with family and friends.
