About Me

As a family medicine physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I provide ongoing medical care for patients with chronic conditions as well as cancer screenings. It’s rewarding to get to know my patients so well after seeing them for a number of years.

My favorite part about Ohio State is the opportunity to work with amazing colleagues. I also enjoy teaching medical students and family medicine residents.

When I’m not working I enjoy spending time with my family, reading and watching Ohio State sports. All four of my children graduated from Ohio State, so we’re a Buckeye family.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
