About Me

As a family medicine physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I am passionate about caring for patients and optimizing their health. I practice the full spectrum of family medicine, providing care for all individuals from newborns to geriatric patients.

I specialize in men’s and women’s health, adolescent medicine, health promotion, mind-body practices, preventive medicine and disease management. I provide treatments for arthritis, diabetes, asthma, anxiety, depression and other conditions. I love helping my patients to stay healthy so they can achieve their goals in life.

I enjoy the community here at Ohio State, and the resources for patients are outstanding.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends, traveling, reading, cooking, exercising and listening to music.

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.
