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.
