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.

    It seemed like my care provider was rushing to get me out of his office. I did not spend more than 5 minutes with him before he claimed my issue was minor and sent me over to get X-Rays, then never went over the X-Ray results with me and sent me home without any explanations.

    I think Dr. Vetter was very nice and definitely kept the experience as good as he could while zapping me (EMG). He also talked so made it seem not as bad.

    I don't think he completely understood my complaints.
