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.

    This was very first visit to Dr. Mack as my new primary care doctor - he was thorough, helpful, and probably got off schedule he was with me so long! The tech who did my blood draw was the BEST I have ever had!!

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 09/29/2023, Dr. Mack has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
