About Me

As a family medicine physician, I specialize in treating anxiety, asthma, depression, diabetes, hypertension, soft tissue injuries, sprains and strains. I work to improve my patients’ quality of life through compassionate care, disease management and preventative medicine. I am especially interested in providing care to underserved communities, and have been an educator at the Columbus Free Clinic for nearly twenty years.

I enjoy working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center because of the uniquely collaborative and supportive atmosphere. We work together to continually improve patient care and outcomes.

In my free time I enjoy gardening, reading, walking and spending time with friends and family over good food.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
