About Me

I’ve had many family members who have serious (and often life-threatening) illnesses, so I have been on the “receiving end” of the healthcare system. I hope I can treat patients how I prefer to be treated. It’s very rewarding to meet an extremely nervous patient for the first time and by the end of the visit, to see them relax and tell you that they trust you.

I chose vascular surgery during my general surgery residency because the patients are often very complicated with multiple medical problems. I enjoy helping sort these problems out and caring for “really sick” patients. Vascular patients are, in general, very thankful. They don’t expect to be “cured,” but they want to be comfortable and live a relatively normal life.

In my free time, I enjoy cycling. I have ridden in Pelotonia every year since it began. I have a close set of friends who all ride together and keep pushing me to be better. I enjoy riding for the health benefits and miss it during Ohio winters – I get too bored to do indoor cycling.
