About Me

As a transplant hepatologist at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I specialize in the care of patients with advanced liver disease and cirrhosis and perform a variety of endoscopic procedures including colonoscopies, upper endoscopies, the placement of feeding tubes, and esophageal dilations. When I’m not treating patients, I provide instruction on liver disease and lead small groups of medical students in clinical practice. In addition to teaching, I enjoy conducting outcome-based research on patients with liver disease to improve patient care.
