About MeAs a transplant nephrologist at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I specialize in solid organ transplant and treating those with end-organ failure. My entire career has been devoted to caring for patients who can benefit from organ transplantation. I provide the specialized care that these patients need, even in the most challenging of circumstances.
I believe in treating each patient as if he or she were a member of my own family. I provide them with the best medical care possible in a caring and compassionate manner. I am honest with my patients and make sure that I spend as much time with each patient as he or she might need.
When I’m not working I enjoy relaxing with my family, traveling and skiing.
