About Me

As a family medicine physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I specialize in geriatrics and the care of older patients, specifically patients needing long-term and end of life care. I also work with patients to provide pain management, nursing home care and palliative medicine services.

I think it’s important to focus on comprehensive care rather than efficiency, and seek to ensure that my patients feel I have answered their concerns. I feel a sense of satisfaction knowing that I am giving back to my patients and my community.

I enjoy the challenges of working with complex patients, as well as the opportunity to teach medical students, residents and fellows at Ohio State.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, singing and cycling.

    Dr. Mack is without a doubt the finest provider I have ever encountered. His knowledge, compassion, and actual interest in my health is second to none. He is the embodiment of how a physician should be. He is excellent at return contact with messages through MyChart.
