As a gastroenterologist at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I primarily specialize in treating patients with liver diseases. I see patients who suffer from chronic hepatitis B and autoimmune liver diseases, as well as patients who require evaluations for liver transplantation.
I think it’s important to develop long term relationships with each of my patients.
My favorite part about working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is the opportunity to be a part of a great liver team that consistently provides excellent patient care.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending my free time traveling, watching sports and reading about history.

Consulting and Related Relationships
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
