About Me

As an integrative medicine physician and the division director for Integrative Medicine at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I take a healing-oriented approach to care using evidence-based treatments. In addition to integrative medicine, my specialties include Traditional Chinese medicine and acupuncture. I provide integrative practices including osteopathic manipulation, mind-body practices, botanical medicine and trigger point treatments. When working with patients, I emphasize that nutrition, self-care and prevention are the cornerstone to health and wellbeing. I am very passionate about partnering with my patients to help guide them to a higher quality of life.

I enjoy working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center because of the opportunity to collaborate with many different medical specialties when providing clinical care and participating in research. I also love working at an academic medical center where I’m able to educate the next generation of physicians and clinicians.

When I am not working I love spending time with my wife and children. I practice Qigong, yoga and enjoy biking around Columbus. My wife and I love gardening, cooking and being the caretakers of our 118-year-old home in the Victorian Village.
