About Me

For me, patient care is a continuum of mental, physical and spiritual support throughout a patient's lifetime and in a sense, is a lifetime pact between the patient and physician.

The focus of my practice is on vascular disease – both medical and surgical – with an emphasis on surgical care. Specifically, I concentrate on all aspects of vascular surgery, including endovascular surgery.
I became interested in vascular surgery because it stimulated me more than any other aspect of surgery. It’s very challenging and requires a commitment to performing very technically precise operations.

In my spare time, I enjoy relaxing with my family, reading books about the Civil War and attending Ohio State football games.
