About Me

As a neurologist at Ohio State, I specialize in taking care of patients with multiple sclerosis, demyelinating diseases of the brain and spinal cord, as well as autoimmune diseases of the brain and spinal cord.

When it comes to my care philosophy, I believe in taking the time to create a treatment plan that is a perfect custom fit for each patient. I’ve had the opportunity to treat thousands of individuals and I find it rewarding to help educate my patients and give them a better quality of life.

Here at Ohio State, we have amazing support staff who are professional with every case. My favorite part about Ohio State is that I have time to spend with each of my patients and I’m not always racing to see the next patient.

When I’m not working I like to spend time relaxing with my family, traveling, woodworking, enjoying music and playing the piano.

For the first time in 4 years, someone actually listened to what I had to say, particularly my concern with my neck and I appreciated that. I was beginning to wonder why I was even going to the physician except to get my one medication.

Really liked Dr. Fallis and his medical student. They appear to have a great working relationship. I don't believe that all of my health concerns were really addressed, but Dr. Fallis' expertise is just one piece of the puzzle.
