About Me

I believe that it’s important to remember that patients are individuals. We can be most successful if the patient and his or her physician work as a team, along with other staff and family members. We work together to understand the medical issues facing the patient and what options are available to help treat or control symptoms.

I’m a neuromuscular disease specialist. I became interested in these disorders during my training because I have a background in immunology. Many nerve and muscle diseases are caused by immune system dysfunction. In the past 25 years, we’ve made great strides in treating many immune-mediated muscle and nerve diseases.

The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center has evolved into one of the great tertiary (specialty) care centers in the United States. It’s exciting to be a part of this transformation and to know that it will continue to grow long after I retire from practicing medicine.
