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.

    She seemed to know what she was talking about and was very thorough and friendly. She was a little dismissive of how medical marijuana has helped me manage my condition but did not discourage me from using it if I believe it helps.

    My first time seeing this provider. She ordered blood work, which I got done right on site. Maybe used a little too much medical jargon but overall she was nice.
