About Me

As a family medicine physician, I have a special interest in preventative healthcare, chronic disease management, women’s health and mental health. I find joy in my work, as I’m able to provide all these types of care to my patients on a regular basis.

I believe that optimal health is reached by addressing a patient’s medical condition as well as his or her mental health and social situation. Ohio State is an institution that supports this through providing well rounded healthcare including psychology and psychiatry in addition to excellent care managers and social workers. It’s great being part of a medical center that provides high quality integrated care to its patients and allows me to train medical students and residents to do the same.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family, exercising and traveling.

reviewed health conditions, cancer survivor and recent hernia operations. She worried about my neglect of some basic tests and shots held at bay due to four years with cancer treatment. Got caught up with tests and shots and reduced dosage of one medicine. Scheduled a colonscopy. I appreciate her concern for my overall health.
