About Me

As a general cardiologist at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I provide all aspects of cardiovascular care as well as the best advice for patients to manage their chronic conditions. I specialize in non-invasive cardiology including echocardiography, electrocardiography and exercise testing. I believe in providing patients with access to the best care and information in order to improve their quality of life.

My favorite part about Ohio State is the opportunity to work with a group of outstanding physicians whose mission is to provide the best cardiovascular care to our patients.

When I’m not working I enjoy exercising, reading, watching good television and attending Ohio State sporting events.
