About Me

As a hospitalist, I specialize in the care of hospitalized patients. I work with patients, their families and other physicians to ensure they receive the best possible medical care. I believe in connecting with each of my patients on a personal level and emphasize shared-decision making to create a custom care plan to address their unique medical needs and obtain better health outcomes.

My professional interests include internal medicine, quality improvement, patient safety, patient experience, clinical operations and medical education.

My favorite part about working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is the culture of patient-centered care we promote in our hospitals. This is very important to me and is a guiding force in my work, as the optimal patient experience is proven to lead to better patient outcomes.

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.
