About Me

What’s rewarding about being a gastroenterologist is the ability to treat (or prevent) digestive disorders that can impact a person’s well-being. It’s important for me to bring individualized medical care to my patients. I do this by paying close attention to their needs and personal goals.

What I enjoy most about The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is working with top-notch experts in every field. We all work together to provide the most comprehensive care for patients.

In my spare time, I like to relax with my family, read and spend time outdoors.
