About Me

As a family medicine physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I specialize in osteopathic manipulative medicine, integrative medicine, preventive and primary care. I am passionate about seeking health in my patients, optimizing function, and partnering with my patients in their journey to becoming their best selves. I strive to empower my patients to take charge of their health. I utilize a broad array of treatment modalities including osteopathic manipulative treatment, needling, and mind-body practices.

In my role as a medical educator, I enjoy sharing and developing my passion through teaching and learning alongside medical students and resident physicians. I share my passion for family medicine with my peers and community through service on the Central Ohio Academy of Family Physicians and the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians Foundation.

I love spending time with my lovely wife, our young son, and our English bulldog puppy. I enjoy cooking, reading, hiking, and self-educating on Renaissance and Reformation history.

    Got the sense this was more about 'clearing the docket' than figuring out health problems. Didn't appear there was any preparation for this specific appt.
