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.

Although my appointment was the last of the day, doctor received me as though i was the first patient of the day. From his warm smile greeting to his observations and recommendations on completing my examination, his professional manner and expertise are enhanced by the care and advise he offers. An exceptional primary care physician who truly listens and responds to each question, even the stupid ones!
