About Me

As an endocrinologist at Ohio State, I specialize in type 1 diabetes. I believe in personalizing my care approach to help patients adapt to life with diabetes, rather than only focusing on long-term glucose levels (A1C values), writing prescriptions and a quick discharge. I think it's important to help people understand the reality of living with type 1 diabetes.

I am working to develop a comprehensive program where people with type 1 diabetes feel they have a clinic that cares about them as a person. I want to help my patients adapt their regimen to their changing lifestyle. In addition to developing the clinic dedicated to adults with type 1 diabetes, we are also developing community-based activities and programs. Our goal is to have networking opportunities throughout the Columbus area for people with type 1 diabetes and their families.

One particular focus for our program is helping the young adults transition to college then to life after college. In addition to serving as an advisor on the national level for the College Diabetes Network (CDN), I also provide support to Ohio State’s chapter of CDN which helps to provide peer and social; networking to our college students living with diabetes.
