About Me

I practice the full spectrum of family medicine including the treatment of children and elderly patients. I place an emphasis on preventative healthcare and chronic disease management. Some of these chronic diseases include conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, asthma and heart failure. I also work as an educator for medical students and family medicine residents.

I strive to provide patient-centered and cost-effective care that is based on the best research evidence available. I believe in individualized healthcare and that a patient’s health can be improved through patient education, partnership and shared decision-making.

I love working at The Ohio State University because we are continually expanding our patient-centered care. The knowledge base and resources here at Ohio State are unmatched by any other institution. In addition, I find it stimulating to have the opportunity to teach students and residents.

In my free time I enjoy relaxing with my family, traveling and enjoying the outdoors.
