About Me

As a pulmonologist at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I specialize in asthma and exercise-induced asthma. I see patients in an outpatient practice and in our intensive care units. My goal is to provide the best evidence-based care with empathy and patience, that’s tailored specifically to each patient. There’s no greater satisfaction than being able to make someone feel better and become healthier.

My favorite part about working at Ohio State is the passion and pride that we all have not only for the medical center, but for everything that our university represents. As caregivers, we’re able to collaborate amongst specialties and divisions to provide the best team-based patient care.

When I’m not working, most of my time is spent as a busy father and husband. I’m an avid athlete and enjoy running and weight-training. I also love to cook and am an aspiring chef.

    Dr. Parsons is an amazing provider. He listens to my concerns, answers my questions, and shares his knowledge with me. I trust him completely with my care.

    Our family doctor (PCP) had a question regarding my medication. Dr. Parsons was out of the country on vacation - my doctor was so impressed that Dr. Parsons called him back from vacation to give him the answer. Not too many doctors like that!
