About Me

Every day as an otolaryngology surgeon I help people to feel better. I work in a highly specialized area of medicine that focuses on the face, head and neck area.

Through expert surgery, we can achieve a wide range of restorative solutions for patients. Whatever the procedure, I believe that all patients should get top-notch care. Ohio State allows me to deliver that caliber of care.

Our team of professionals has access to Ohio State's cutting-edge technology and state-of-the-art research and clinical facilities. Our bench-to-bedside approach allows our patients to receive the best targeted treatment, which leads to fewer side effects and better outcomes.

When I'm not working, I like to attend Ohio State football games or take in a good movie. I also like traveling and relaxing with my family. When I have time, I enjoy doing home improvement projects.

    I'm not sure this is good or bad...he just is very straight forward, very business professional, kind. but doesn't exude warmth, and seemed to be an excellent surgeon from my experience. I feel like the staff surrounding him was extremely kind and attentive and that helped for sure. I just know that some people may feel put off by him because he is rather stoic and it might be helpful for people to know this upfront.
