About Me

As a family medicine and integrative medicine physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I specialize in osteopathic medicine and acupuncture. I’m interested in acupuncture, mind-body practices, health promotion and holistic medicine. I see adults, infants and children.

It’s inspiring to see patients who are grounded in the daily, sometimes difficult, work of making healthy choices for themselves and their families.

I’m interested in research that applies osteopathic manipulative treatment (OMT) to pediatric populations, especially those with feeding difficulties and the physical tensions that accumulate from stress or birth injury.

    This doctor fills a huuuuuge gap in healthcare model as I've experienced it. Treating chronic pain+movement limitations usually ends up as:"come to an evaluation, go to PT, see you in 6 months."Then the PT has limited set of knowledge or skills and minimal coordination with physician.Then back to the doctor, "Oh that didn't work? Maybe an MRI and rinse, repeat."Be able to consult with this doctor more regularly lets me get so much more value out of physical therapy visits. In many cases, I find this doctor more useful than PT to achieve certain movement goals.
