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.

    When the doctor entered the room he explained the procedure to the assistant in great detail He was teaching the assistant. He then looked into the ear, removed a bit more wax. I like the doctor, the assistant can learn a lot from this doctor.

    Very blunt, took just one look at my records I brought in. I came in for a second opinion and maybe even an outside the box approach and nothing. I'm still suffering from symptoms and feel so lost. Very disappointed. I know my condition 'is what it is' but I did not leave with optimism or clarity.
