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.

    Dr. Mac is by far the best. He shows compassion, listens and talks with you not at you.

Consulting and Related Relationships

In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
