About Me

I believe it is my job to provide individualized care and also to advocate and coordinate the care of my patients as they navigate an increasingly complex health care system.

I provide care for patients of all ages. I am board certified in pediatrics and internal medicine and enjoy caring for a wide variety of patients. I’m particularly interested in caring for adult patients on the autism spectrum. I believe these patients deserve physicians who understand their needs and life experiences and will work with them to overcome the barriers they face in seeking healthcare.

Working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center allows me to pursue my dream of providing excellent patient care. It allows me to teach medical students and residents the skills to become capable and compassionate physicians. And it allows me to develop new methods to care for patients on the autism spectrum as they transition to adult-based care.
