About Me

I’m a hematologist with a focus on non-malignant blood disorders. My specific areas of expertise include platelet abnormalities, blood clotting and bleeding disorders. In addition to treating patients, I serve as professor in the Division of Hematology. In 2014 and 2017, I was rated in the top 10 percent of physicians in the nation for patient satisfaction.

Research is a big part of my career. I established the thrombotic microangiopathy research program, which studies rare blood diseases including thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP) and atypical hemolytic-uremic syndrome (HUS). I’m also involved in the design and execution of several international clinical trials.

I enjoy working alongside world-class medical experts at The James to improve patient care. The collaborative environment among physicians and staff at The OSUCCC – James is what truly sets it apart from other cancer centers.

My work has received widespread recognition. I’ve been published in national and international medical journals, including the New England Journal of Medicine, Blood, and, the Journal of Thrombosis and Haemostasis.
