About Me

Providing excellent, evidence-based, personalized care to my patients is my primary objective as an otolaryngologist. This level of care requires collaborating my efforts with those of my patients, staff and colleagues at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

It's a joy to work with other specialists in the care and management of patients while also having the opportunity to teach residents and grow as an academic physician. My involvement in The Ohio State University College of Medicine has afforded me a great opportunity to meet some brilliant future doctors.

Ohio State's leaders are on the cutting edge of medicine. My own participation in national otolaryngic allergy developments has placed me on the forefront of newer allergy treatments such as sublingual immunotherapy. Our department has one of the largest populations of patients receiving this treatment. I expect this number to grow, which is quite exciting.

In my free time, I love to read, travel, see movies, attend Ohio State football games and relax with my family.
