About Me

My work in gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition includes specialized care for colon cancer prevention. I help patients with genetic conditions who are predisposed to the development of colon polyps or cancer. This includes a multidisciplinary approach with other team members to provide optimal diagnostics and long-term care.

I believe in providing care that is personalized and state of the art, while also maintaining the crucial personal relationship with my patients.

There are many things I enjoy about practicing medicine at Ohio State. I appreciate the element of continued learning that comes from being at an academic hospital on a great campus. It provides valuable opportunities to collaborate across specialties and disciplines. This team approach allows us to offer better patient care.

In my free time, I enjoy relaxing with family and watching the Columbus Clippers.
