About Me

I’m a urologist here at Ohio State and I specialize in general urology. I’m passionate about being able to practice both medicine and surgery. I believe in treating each patient as if he or she were a member of my family and I ensure that every person is getting the very best possible care.

My favorite part about working here at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is the friendly nature of my fellow faculty members, as well as the patients.

When I’m not working I like to spend my free time reading, enjoying the outdoors and relaxing with my family.

Doctor Bellows, Dr. Payne (resident) Dr. Baught were well informed about my condition. They asked many questions about what I was experiencing. They all fed back information about my condition and what plans were necessary to address my issues. I now understand the plan that will be followed for recovery.

Impressed by provider's interest and knowledge of my problem. She listened very well, understanding my conservative approach with this particular health problem, ie. to avoid use of antibiotics and was able to offer alternative treatment, should I need it. She is intelligent reassuring and professional.
