About Me

My ophthalmology practice includes expertise in cornea and external diseases, cataract and refractive surgery, and other eye conditions.

I've always wanted a career where I could help people. What makes me happy in life is when I can help someone in need.

Providing a medical or surgical therapy can truly change a patient's quality of life. When people tell me how grateful they are for my care, it makes me feel good about what I do. I also enjoy educating medical students and resident physicians.

In addition to my ophthalmology work at Ohio State, I have participated in medical mission trips to Nicaragua and Ghana with Ohio State colleagues. We've done vision screenings, corneal transplants, cataract surgery and other treatments for children and adults. It’s always a rewarding experience. The people there are so appreciative. I love knowing I've helped change someone's life.

I enjoy working at Ohio State. Ohio State's Eye and Ear Institute is a beautiful facility and easy to access. We have modern equipment and spacious exam rooms. We have the resources and expertise to help people in many ways.
