About MeAs a physiatrist, I specialize in prescribing mobility equipment and managing long-term rehabilitation needs. I’m passionate about my work because I believe in improving my patients' lives through creative solutions. My goal is to find the best fitting and functioning mobility equipment for each of my patients. As a strong believer in the importance of providing passionate healthcare, I also ensure the highest quality of individualized rehabilitation regimens and therapeutic modalities.
Mobility equipment is highly individualized depending on a patient’s needs. It has the potential to either significantly improve, if met properly, or significantly worsen a patient's health and quality of life. Therefore, it requires the same level of attention that’s used to prescribe medication or perform a medical procedure.
I enjoy working at Ohio State because of the collaborative environment and team approach to patient care. My colleagues are excellent at their jobs and fully embrace the patient centered, multi-faceted approach to problem solving, which provides our patients with the highest level of care.
In my free time I enjoy relaxing with my family, traveling, spending time outdoors, attending Ohio State football games and reading. I recently began participating in triathlons. I already loved swimming, running and cycling so it was a great way to combine all three forms of exercise.

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.
