About Me

As a family medicine physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I specialize in disease management and preventive medicine. I believe in using a holistic approach to patient care. I think it’s important to be mindful of where patients live and the unique set of challenges that they face. I am also interested in health policy and public health issues that directly impact urban underserved communities and medically vulnerable patients.

My favorite part about working at Ohio State is the diverse patient population that I get to treat. CarePoint East has a great staff and an excellent support system. I also enjoy teaching medical students and residents how to provide quality health care to underserved communities.

In my free time I enjoy drawing, playing basketball and watching sports.
