About Me

As a family medicine physician, I love taking care of patients of all ages and from all walks of life. I enjoy working with patients and families to optimize their health by providing preventive care and managing illness. I also have a special interest in women’s health, including contraception management. I understand that each patient is unique, and believe in tailoring evidence-based medicine to fit individualized care plans. Because of this, I always encourage my patients to ask questions and take an active role in understanding their health care.

In my free time, I love rock climbing, hiking, gardening, traveling and exploring more of Columbus.
