About Me

Specialty care is a strength at the Ohio State University. I try to collaborate with my colleagues to provide the best neurological and neuromuscular clinical care and research options for my patients. I treat my patients as I would a family member, and I work hard to solve and treat their neurological conditions. I develop meaningful relationships with my patients by recognizing their value as a whole person rather than just their diagnosis.

As a neurologist, I specialize in neuromuscular disorders and electromyography. I find the nervous system fascinating and feel a great desire to help patients suffering from neurological and neuromuscular conditions.

I thoroughly enjoy the combination of academic and clinical environments here at The Ohio State University. This balance optimizes the quality of our patients’ care. It is a pleasure to work with the Ohio State medical students and residents. They help provide a team environment and even reenergize my passion for medicine.

When I’m not working, spending time with my family is always my top priority. My other interests include basketball, running and enjoying the outdoors.
