About Me

As an endocrinologist at Ohio State, I specialize in type 1 diabetes. I help my patients monitor and manage their daily glucose trends, as well as try to help them learn the best ways to manage their condition.

My plan is to develop a 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 type 1 diabetes, we will create 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.

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), prescriptions and a quick discharge. I think it's important to help people understand the reality of living with type 1 diabetes.

Although I’m new to Ohio State, I'm enjoying the experience so far, especially working with all of my colleagues. I also work with diabetic students on campus, through Ohio State's active chapter of the College Diabetes Network.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling and attending Ohio State football games and I am also a huge soccer fan.

I enjoy seeing Dr. Wyne. She takes her time and asks about things outside of my diabetes, which is nice because it isn't the only thing about me. She also checks in on the portal to ask me questions which I like. I would definitely recommend her to other patients looking for an endocrinologist.
