About Me

As an electrophysiologist, I specialize in the care of cardiac arrhythmias. I take a multidisciplinary approach to care. My team and I consult with the appropriate specialists if additional input is needed to provide the best outcomes. I’m passionate about being able to deliver therapies that can significantly improve my patients’ quality of life.

My research interests include evaluating new technologies for ablation of cardiac arrhythmias and advancements in cardiac device therapy, specifically pacemakers and defibrillators.

I enjoy working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center because it’s an institution that continuously strives to improve the quality of care, and I always receive the necessary support to perform advanced arrhythmia therapies.

When I’m not working, I enjoy golfing, fly fishing and spending time with my family and dogs.
