About Me

As a board-certified clinical neuropsychologist, it’s my duty to remain up to date with the latest medical research and assessment techniques in order to provide accurate and effective service for my patients. Moreover, it’s just as important to understand the contextual factors underlying each patient’s experience, as medical conditions are often complex and do not occur in a vacuum. In my practice, I have particular expertise in the areas of addiction/dual-diagnoses, neuropsychological sequelae of medical conditions, neurodegenerative diseases, PTSD, and traumatic brain injuries.

One of the most rewarding parts of working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is having the opportunity to participate in the scientific process through clinical research and collaboration with talented colleagues. Engaging in ongoing scientific inquiry helps us to advance our understanding of psychiatric and medical illnesses and how best to approach treatment.

In my free time, I enjoy cooking, sports, and spending time with my wife and two daughters.

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.

As of 09/30/2022, Dr. Aase has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
