About Me

As a family medicine physician, I provide a comprehensive, holistic approach to health care for the entire family. I believe a strong physician-patient relationship founded on compassion is central to providing the highest quality care. I encourage my patients to ask questions and participate in developing their individualized treatment plans. I treat a wide range of conditions, but am especially interested in cardiology, diabetes, gynecologic care, hypertension, preventative medicine and women's health.

I enjoy working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center because of the opportunity to serve my community in the dual role of physician and educator. At Ohio State, we enjoy access to a vast network of resources and educational opportunities to ensure our patients receive quality care for generations to come.

When I'm not working, I enjoy playing tennis, traveling and spending time with my family. My husband and I have two young boys who are active in the community. Most of the time our activities revolve around our kids.
