About Me

As an allergist and immunologist, I specialize in treating food allergies and allergic skin disorders. These conditions can affect anyone from children to adults and may severely impact a person’s quality of life.

I believe in providing patients with the tools and information about their specific condition. Patients can then take an active role in their own healthcare to reach their goals. I address my patients’ health concerns in a compassionate manner and assist them in reaching and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

The people here at Ohio State are easily the best part about my job. My colleagues are always available to discuss difficult cases, and we have a level of teamwork here that is unparalleled.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time reading, going on runs and traveling.

Dr. R is very down to earth and relatable - i appreciate having a provider that i get along with. She speaks respectfully, but also has a sense of humor with a direct and honest communication style. My experiences with her have always been positive. I recommended her to my husband for services and that is who he now sees for allergy-related visits. He is also very happy with her.
