About Me

I’m a board-certified anesthesiologist and interventional pain medicine physician. I specialize in treating painful spine and joint conditions.

I believe in a comprehensive approach for pain management where we can design a plan to attack pain from all angles. This may include a range of treatments from exercise and rehabilitation to diet counseling and behavioral therapy to injection-based treatments when needed. I integrate the newest, evidence-based technologies into my practice as well as complementary medicine approaches including massage, yoga and meditation. I work one-on-one with my patients to develop a long-term treatment plan that will help them get back to doing the activities that they enjoy.

In my spare time, I like to explore different parks in central Ohio with my family.

    Both the resident who spoke with me and examined me first (I'm sorry, but I have forgotten her name) and Dr. Nama were friendly, reassuring, clear in their explanation of the treatment plan, and very professional as well as personable. I was put at ease right away -- a good thing, as this was my first experience with the Spine Center.
