About Me

I chose a career in medicine to have a positive and meaningful impact on others, and I love that my job affords me the opportunity to help improve quality of life for every person who comes to see me. As a dermatologist at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I treat a wide variety of conditions ranging from acne to skin cancer. I have received numerous awards for my clinical care, and I was named to the Physician Care Connection Hall of Fame in 2023.

Serving in academic medicine is a special honor and privilege as it allows me to inspire and train the next generation of clinicians. I am a professor and the chair of the Department of Dermatology at The Ohio State University College of Medicine.
