About MeAs a dermatologist, I specialize in psoriasis and complex medical dermatology. I am also the director of numerous clinical trials. My passion for medicine is fueled through the pursuit and discovery of new treatments so that I may provide the best available options to successfully treat my patients and promote their satisfaction.
I truly believe in providing my patients with the highest quality care, and this can only be accomplished through devotion to clinical research. I love caring for my patients and providing them with the best treatments available. It’s fulfilling to be able to use my expertise to develop individualized care for people of all ages with various needs.
One of the things I enjoy most about working here at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is the opportunity to work with physicians of all different specialties. Ohio State is very unique in that it allows me to combine educational aspects with my work and expanding progress as a physician. I especially enjoy educating our medical students and residents.
I’m originally from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but I have found a new home here in Columbus and at Ohio State. In my free time I enjoy traveling, being outdoors, reading and spending time with my family.
