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.

Very attentive to my problem. Suggested some possible solutions. Listened to my ideas on how to proceed with the problem.

Dr. Mack was very thoughtful during my time with him. My only complaint was a 2+ hour wait period after my initial appointment time. I do understand that may occasionally happen so hopefully this was the exception rather than the rule.
