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.

    Dr. Wellner is a good physician. I'm sure but his bedside manner is terrible. This was my 2nd visit with him and both times he made me feel like I was dying. He said he was sending me for an ultrasound to look for liver/cancer. He is the doom of gloom.
