About Me

As a cardiologist at Ohio State, I specialize in advanced heart failure, cardiac transplantation and other areas of mechanical heart support. I am passionate about my career because of the cutting edge treatments and advancements in cardiovascular technology that have the ability to dramatically improve patients' lives.

We have many treatments and technologies available for patients, so we take the time to understand each patient in order to find the best possible treatment. In doing so, we make our patients and their families a valuable part of our care team.

The collaborative environment at Ohio State allows experts from many fields to work together for the successful treatment of every patient. Because we are an academic medical center, we have access to resources and research that aren’t available elsewhere.

In my free time I enjoy traveling, being outdoors and attending Ohio State football games.
