About Me

With double board certification in anesthesiology and pain medicine, I am uniquely capable in the practice of multimodal pain management. I am able to evaluate, diagnose, and treat complex, acute and chronic pain syndromes. I treat pain comprehensively, from the most conservative with physical therapy and exercise to more invasive measures such as injection therapy. Previously, pain was treated mostly with opioids. New and innovative therapies have emerged and I am proud to perform them to help my patients live happily and healthfully. I am passionate about providing cutting-edge techniques to provide my patients with the best care possible. Each patient is unique and I am excited to prepare an individual treatment plan with them. I believe patient education and collaboration between doctor and patient are vital to the successful management of pain. I have a special interest in the holistic mind-body treatment of chronic pain and refer patients to pain psychology for mindfulness techniques as well as integrative medicine and acupuncture.

I have written about pain medicine and anesthesiology in a number of peer-reviewed publications including medical journals and text books. I have presented several abstracts and posters at national meetings of anesthesiology and pain societies.

I am the associate fellowship director for the pain medicine fellowship at The Ohio State University. Medical education and the academic development of the next generation of physicians remains one of my greatest professional interests.

I completed sub-specialty fellowship training in pain medicine at University of California San Diego and performed my residency training in anesthesiology at Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. I performed a transitional intern year at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center in Toledo, Ohio. I earned my medical degree at University of Toledo College of Medicine in Toledo, Ohio, where I was accepted into the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society. I finished my undergraduate studies with a double major in biology and psychology with a minor in chemistry at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, where I graduated magna cum laude.

In my spare time, I enjoy traveling, hiking, and reading novels.
