About Me

I’m a gastroenterologist who specializes in inflammatory bowel disease with a focus on how these chronic illnesses impact women specifically. Inflammatory bowel disease affects women in unique ways compared to men because it can worsen menstrual symptoms, lead to iron-deficiency anemia and even impact your chances of pregnancy during flare-ups.

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I’m the director of women’s health in inflammatory bowel disease and the director of capsule endoscopy. I often use capsule endoscopy, a procedure that uses a wireless camera the size of a vitamin pill to check a patient’s gastrointestinal tract, to examine areas not easily seen with more traditional technology and to diagnose certain conditions. My research centers on these topics and has progressed to research trials in many instances.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my family.
