About Me

As a cardiologist, I provide preventative management and treatment for diseases affecting the heart, arteries and veins. My goal is to help my patients overcome their illness, and nothing makes me happier than helping them achieve a better quality of life and well-being. I ensure a friendly, respectful environment and a patient-centered care model founded on a strong patient-physician relationship.

I enjoy working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center because it is home to the best cardiovascular disease division I have ever seen. There is great strength in the connection we share in providing quality health care, which really expresses itself through the supportiveness of my colleagues. I am also passionate about educating our fellows and ensuring a legacy of compassion.

When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my family and friends.
