About Me

I'm an ophthalmologist specializing in glaucoma. I chose this specialty because I love the one-on-one relationships physicians have with their patients. I enjoy getting to know people and improving their quality of life.

I chose to work at Ohio State for many reasons. As an Ohio native, I take pride in our state and its people. When I was a medical student, a family member came to Ohio State and received excellent care. I was impressed with the physician’s ability and compassion. I wanted to be a part of that.

I've always appreciated how procedures like refraction and cataract surgery improve vision. But I was drawn to multifaceted ocular diseases, such as glaucoma. I enjoy the long-term relationships with patients and families as I work with them throughout their treatment.

Preventing vision loss is rewarding. I screen patients to see if they have early signs of glaucoma or other diseases. Early detection helps prevent vision loss.

My patients receive the best possible care. My goal is to give them a thorough eye exam, explain what’s going on, address any fears and answer all of their questions.
