  • Physician What's this? A physician, or doctor, is extensively trained to diagnose and treat complex medical problems. Often, physicians focus their practice on certain disease categories, treatment methods or patient types. Physicians can diagnose and treat illness, prescribe medication, offer medical consultation and advice, perform surgery and more.

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.
