About Me

As a family medicine physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I believe that each patient has unique goals. I take the time to listen to my patients and figure out what they wish to accomplish during their visit, then use encouragement to help them reach their goals.

Practicing family medicine gives me the opportunity to work with infants, teenagers, adolescents, adults and geriatric patients – the whole family. I specialize in treating acute and chronic conditions.

Ohio State is an amazing organization. I’m able to access the necessary resources to support both my patients and my career. It’s great to be able to work closely with all members of the healthcare team.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time playing soccer and traveling.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
