About Me

As a gastroenterologist, my clinical experience involving patients with pancreatic disorders has impacted my research interests. Through research, I’m motivated to improve patient care for individuals with diseases that are both difficult to diagnose and to treat.

I believe in providing patients with a comprehensive evaluation, which helps determine the nature of their symptoms and develop an effective management plan.

What I enjoy most about working here at Ohio State is the ability to give patients access to a wide variety of services by working with a variety of highly skilled specialists. These services include advanced imaging and endoscopy, surgery, nutrition and other medical specialties.

In my free time, I enjoy being outdoors, attending Ohio State football games and relaxing with my family.

    He was well acquainted with my history, and had definitely done his homework. He was pleasant, very knowledgeable, and a good listener. He included me in the evaluation of my health issues. I liked that he took notes and genuinely wanted to help me. He didn't just start prescribing pills!
