About Me

I practice in both pulmonary and critical care. I am passionate about helping my patients return to health. In those unfortunate cases where restoring a patient’s health is not possible, I do all I can to relieve their symptoms and maintain the best quality of life possible.

Focusing on the overall health and well-being of my patients is very important to me. A test or treatment is only valuable if it improves how my patient feels or improves his or her long-term quality of life. I talk to my patients to better understand their goals. My objective is to understand what they hope to accomplish from seeing me and how we can best meet those goals together.

The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center fosters a great sense of teamwork among physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, pharmacists and other experts. I love working with such intelligent, professional and dedicated team members.

After hours, I enjoy watching movies, attending Ohio State football games and reading.

    Dr. Exline has been treating me for sarcoidosis for 3-4 years. He is a fine doctor and human being. I cannot say enough about how lucky I am to have him as a provider. His kindness, expertise and empathy seemingly knows no bounds. I have many example of this should anyone need the details.
