About Me

As a physiatrist, I specialize in physical medicine and rehabilitation, specifically non-operative spine care and electrodiagnostic testing. I particularly enjoy meeting and talking with my patients and identifying the best way to assist them in achieving their highest levels of function and quality of life.

I believe that all patients have distinctly unique backgrounds and life situations. When formulating a treatment plan for a patient, it’s very important that the treatment techniques are flexible as well as specific to each person.

The teamwork and multidisciplinary approach, as well as the multitude of resources available here are what make my job at Ohio State so unique and special. I also have the expertise and support of many talented colleagues.

In my free time, I really enjoy spending as much time as I can with my family. I also enjoy reading, as well as spending time outdoors.

    Very nice man. Little or no explanation of what results he was looking for. Just a poke here and there. I told the doctor I've had neuropathy for 30 years. He did verify that.

    Dr. Vetter is an amazing diagnostician. I have seen him several times when I had concerns about walking - and he has always sent me for the right tests and to the best doctors.
