About Me

As a non-invasive cardiologist, I specialize in advanced cardiac imaging and treat patients with hypercholesterolemia, structural heart disease and valvular heart disease. I believe in enhancing patient care by strengthening the patient-physician relationship through productive communication. There are many complex diagnostic and therapeutic modalities currently available, and my goal is to tailor these in a way that is applicable and beneficial for each patient.

I have a passion for valvular heart disease research as it relates to cardiac magnetic resonance.

I enjoy working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center because of the collaboration among all of the subspecialties as well as our sense of community. At Ohio State, we have a willingness and dedication to achieve the best care for our patients.

In my free time I enjoy running, swing dancing and spending time with my family.
