About Me

As an obstetrician/gynecologist, I treat a variety of health concerns within this area of medicine. I am especially interested in those aspects of obstetrics and gynecology that are related to psychological and behavioral issues. These aspects may include sexuality, premenstrual mood disorders or other health-related concerns.

In my practice as a generalist obstetrician/gynecologist, I provide care for women through the full spectrum of their reproductive health needs. This ranges from family planning and pregnancy care to menstrual and menopausal problems.

I enjoy all aspects of care, from annual well-woman visits to delivering babies to performing surgical procedures when they are necessary.

Working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I know that there are many valuable resources available. Whenever necessary, I can refer my patients to the appropriate experts in any field. I know they will take excellent care of any problems my patients may have that are outside of my area of expertise.

In my free time there are many things I like to do, especially taking the time to enjoy a good movie.

My doctor listens to all my questions and makes sure to explain everything to me and gives me plenty of time to ask questions.

The provider was good and explained everything prior to doing it. I was uncomfortable at first seeing a man would be doing my ultrasound but he ended up being just fine.

Everyone is always nice, they do a good job, & care about my questions/concerns. Sometimes there is a wait but for an OB dr. who doesn't rush thru your appointment, I'll take it!
