About Me

As a family medicine physician with a focus on sports medicine, I’m passionate about empowering patients to achieve optimal health and fitness through a collaborative relationship grounded in mutual respect, accountability and education. I primarily practice sports medicine and provide care to patients of all ages for musculoskeletal and sports related concerns. I frequently work with endurance athletes and overhead throwing athletes.

Having completed several marathons, including the Boston Marathon twice, and as a former nationally ranked collegiate boxer, I have a special interest in working with endurance and combative sport athletes to help them compete at their highest level. I am a team physician for Ohio State athletes and the Columbus Clippers (the AAA affiliate of the Cleveland Indians). I also provide ringside coverage for mixed martial arts and boxing bouts. 

One of the benefits of working at Ohio State are the numerous opportunities for education. I am proficient in innovative technologies and procedures like musculoskeletal (MSK) ultrasound, platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections and Tenex (percutaneous tenotomy) and continue to seek opportunities to learn about the latest advancements. It’s my privilege to educate future medical providers through my position leading the fourth year medical student sports medicine clerkship and as a core faculty member of our sports medicine fellowship program.

    Very attentive and courteous.

    I don't feel like my provider listens closely to my specific issues or trusts what I say. My comfort is rarely a priority, and I often leave feeling the visit was useless. My provider asked if I was training to run a race when I came in for an injury that had been preventing me from running for 4-5 months. It's like each new visit is a refresh and I have to introduce myself.

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.
