About Me

I practice obstetrics, specializing in maternal fetal medicine. This includes treatment of preeclampsia and other problems that can occur during pregnancy. I also treat women experiencing preterm labor and those who have a history of adverse pregnancy outcomes.

Patient-centered care is important to me. In obstetrics, there can be gray areas in approaches to treatment. It is important that healthcare decisions be made as a team with the patient and family as key and essential parts of this team.

There are many things to like about working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. Above all, I appreciate the good people who work here and the patients who come here for their care.

After hours, I like to relax with my family, travel, read or take in a movie. I enjoy the outdoors and attending Ohio State football games.

Something many people don't know about me is that, during my career as a Navy physician, I was deployed and provided care in Haiti, Afghanistan and Central America.
