About Me

My practice is internal medicine with a focus in gastroenterology, liver disease, hepatitis and especially fatty liver disease. I graduated with a degree in medicine almost 50 years ago. I am still very passionate and dedicated to helping fellow human beings with their health problems.

I’ve been practicing long enough to see major breakthroughs in the treatment of viral hepatitis and soon, fatty liver disease. I enjoy finding ways to contribute to patient care, teaching and research missions – both as a senior citizen and physician.

My favorite part about my job is working with intelligent and dedicated staff and physicians at Ohio State.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, relaxing with my family, traveling, and lap swimming.
