About Me

As a family medicine physician, I provide a compassionate, patient-centered approach to care. I deliver comprehensive treatment and management for a variety of chronic conditions including asthma, depression, diabetes and hypertension. I am dedicated to guiding patients to a greater standard of health and wellness.

My favorite part about working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is the collaboration that is common across various departments, allowing us to provide our patients with the best care possible. I also enjoy my role as a mentor and educator for our incoming medical students and residents.

    The best. Listen and showed concern for my issue

  • Reviewed on Mar 27, 2021

    She was very efficient, and very thorough in asking about my prescription medications, what they were prescribed for, my medical history, and family history, so she fully understood the issues I could face down the line. She made sure she completely understood everything that was only briefly mentioned in my MyChart. She also was very patient, and since this was the establishing visit, she made sure she touched on everything she needed to know about me, and made sure that anything that I needed was addressed during my appointment.
