  • Osteopathic Physician What's this? A physician, or doctor, is extensively trained to diagnose and treat complex medical problems. Often, physicians focus their practice on certain disease categories, treatment methods or patient types. Physicians can diagnose and treat illness, prescribe medication, offer medical consultation and advice, perform surgery and more.

About Me

As a primary care sports medicine physician, my specialization focuses on a non-surgical approach to a wide array of musculoskeletal issues for all ages. I believe in working closely with my patients and providing them with a multitude of options that allows for more highly personalized care plans. I emphasize the importance of prevention and strive to help my patients create long lasting healthy and active lifestyles. My goal is to provide my patients with all the necessary knowledge and assistance on their journey back to normal activity.

I enjoy working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center because of the philosophy of individualized care that’s shared among providers. Having access to a vast network of resources and specialists ensures that our patients receive the highest quality care available.

In my free time, I enjoy watching sports, spending time with my friends and family, traveling and staying active through various sports, running, weight lifting and yoga.

Especially kind & caring. Seemed genuine and answered all my questions. Dr. is new to me - and I was very happy with his level of care. Nothing negative to report from this visit to OSU Gahanna reception staff was kind & courteous - and quick! Some of the best receptionists I've seen @ OSU.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
