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.

Don't feel like she listens when I try to explain what is going on. For as fast as she is in & out of the exam room why all wait times so long to be seen.

She is sometimes rude to me and doesn't believe what I am saying - I'm not always sure what she wants me to say - I'm honest and she seems to get annoyed with me.
