About Me

As a physician assistant in sports medicine, I facilitate the treatment and management of patients with injuries caused by exercise or sports-related activities. I specialize in non-surgical treatment of acute and chronic knee conditions, and provide patients with physical therapy prescriptions, bracing options, injection therapy and medication management. I also assist the primary care sports medicine physicians with the management of treatment and follow-up care for commonly experienced conditions of the shoulder, elbow, hip and ankle. I spend time carefully educating patients on the nature of their diagnosis and reviewing available care options. I think it’s important to give patients realistic expectations for results and recovery. I believe a patient must be invested in improving his or her own health, so I like to work together as a team to develop the best treatment plan to get a patient back to a healthy, active lifestyle.

I chose to work at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center as I have always felt that in order to better oneself, one must surround oneself with the best. I enjoy collaborating with a group of some of the most talented physicians and advanced practice providers in the country, and working as part of a team to provide our patients with the highest quality care.

In my free time, I enjoy being active, traveling and spending time with my husband and our two young sons.

    Have been seeing Emily for several years after seeing Dr Borchers. We have talked about my conditions in general & specifically. Wanted x-ray to judge progression. X-ray was done first. Made the appointment much better w/that knowledge. Discussed & r/o certain care options. Agreed on plan

    She was very friendly, professional and thorough in the information she gave me regarding the procedure she was about to perform. She answered all my questions. I did not feel like she was in a rush to leave me and move to next patient.
