- Vascular Surgery
- Physician What's this? A physician, or doctor, is extensively trained to diagnose and treat complex medical problems. Often, physicians focus their practice on certain disease categories, treatment methods or patient types. Physicians can diagnose and treat illness, prescribe medication, offer medical consultation and advice, perform surgery and more.
About MeNo matter who I’m seeing, I try to think of each patient as though they were a family member. When you think of it that way, it really changes how you act and communicate with them. For example, I understand it can be difficult to navigate the complexities of a complicated health care system, especially when you are sick or have a serious problem. That’s why my team and I try to be as empathetic as possible when talking to patients, whether it is over the phone, in the office, or in the hospital. My experiences with my patients have been so rewarding because of this attitude.
As a vascular surgeon, there is great variability in the things you do and the type of people you see. I take care of young patients with sports-related problems and older patients with vascular disease, such as blockages, aneurysms and strokes. I take care of orthopaedic patients, cancer patients, and people with venous diseases such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT) and varicose veins.
When treating patients with vascular disease, I may treat them with medications, but when it’s necessary, I perform minimally invasive procedures as well as traditional open surgeries when appropriate. My team is expert in the state of the art in all areas of vascular surgery. This expertise, combined with our emphasis on customer service, is what I hope makes us a top choice for patients.

Consulting and Related Relationships
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
