About Me

As a physician who specializes in obstetrics and gynecology, my role in the lives of my patients is very rewarding. I love the continuity and relationships that I build with them during their reproductive years. These relationships continue to develop throughout a patient's lifetime.

My philosophy of care is to consider every patient's unique personal and healthcare needs and desires. They can vary widely depending on what each individual is seeking to achieve from each appointment with me. Every visit to my office is focused on the patient's needs and concerns at that time.

One of the things I enjoy about practicing medicine at Ohio State is the continuity of care between and among physicians. Each contributes specialized expertise, and this benefits physicians and patients alike.

In my free time, I enjoy reading, traveling and relaxing with my family.
