About Me

As a nephrologist at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I specialize in caring for patients with immune diseases of the kidney. Fortunately, immune diseases of the kidney can be controlled and damage can be reversed, which isn’t typical for the majority of kidney diseases.

I also specialize in caring for pregnant women with kidney disease. Pregnancy in those patients can be tough, and has been associated with complications affecting both the baby and the mother. I create open discussion with my patients about the risks associated with pregnancy and optimize their care before they get pregnant. I follow them during pregnancy to ensure they have safest pregnancy possible.

I take great pride in helping people avoid dialysis and providing them with the best possible quality of life.
