About Me

I specialize in primary care, internal medicine and geriatrics. I’m passionate about primary care because I enjoy the long-term relationships with my patients. I enjoy geriatric medicine because there’s a great need in our society to care for the aging population.

I believe in providing evidence-based medical care, with a personal touch.

What I enjoy most about The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center are the tools I can use provided by the electronic medical record.

In my spare time, I enjoy relaxing with my family, traveling and movies. I also attend University of Michigan football games and perform regular medical mission trips to Honduras.
