About Me

I am a neurologist who specializes in caring for patients with movement disorders including Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, cerebellar ataxia, normal pressure hydrocephalus (NPH) and other functional movement conditions. Movement disorders can significantly impact quality of life, and I find it very rewarding to be able to use my skills to help solve the problems posed by neurological disease symptoms.

My approach to diagnosis is grounded in the standards established by the academic community, and is enriched by the collaborative spirit embodied at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. When patients come to see me, I aim to listen closely to their concerns and be as thorough as possible to establish an accurate diagnosis.

Individualized treatments plans are focused on improving each patient’s quality of life. My approach includes learning how symptoms intrude on a patient’s daily activities and using this information to recommend the most appropriate next steps. I maintain ongoing communication with the patient to track any variations, like the onset of side effects or loss of treatment effectiveness, and make changes as necessary.

It’s an exciting time to be a faculty member at The Ohio State University. There is a substantial institutional effort to increase the understanding and treatment of neurologic diseases, and I’m proud to be part of this team. Our patients benefit from high-quality, sophisticated services like our multidisciplinary clinics, free community clinic and access to psychotherapists.

Alongside my clinical work, I run a collaborative research program in motor control and Parkinson’s disease (PD). This research is aimed at understanding how the symptoms of PD result from disruption of normal motor control. Such understanding is intended to guide the development of symptom treatment through physical interventions and novel technologies. The current focus of my research is freezing of gait, a symptom of PD that is often resistant to treatment. My work has been widely published in peer-reviewed journals and I have presented my findings at medical conferences across the United States and internationally.

My role also includes helping train the next generation of physicians. I am an associate professor of neurology at The Ohio State University College of Medicine. Medical students and residents join me during clinical sessions and observe my evaluation of patients with movement disorders, and they participate in our division’s weekly Movement Case Conference. I manage our fellowship program, in which neurologists are trained to diagnose and treat movement disorders including Parkinson’s disease and related movement disorders.

I am lucky to have acquired knowledge and skills that are helpful to patients with movement disorders, and I am privileged to work with a team of clinicians and staff at the Ohio State University who make it possible for us to make a difference in our patients’ daily lives.

    My experience with the provider was very good. He was very thorough, careful, patient with me, listened to my comments and explained the exam procedures as they were done. This was helpful for my and my daughter's understanding of the exam and the goals of the appointment.
