I am a palliative care specialist focused on helping patients who are coping with cancer live life to the fullest. At The James, we use a team approach to help with complex symptoms such as pain, nausea and shortness of breath, as well as to address the many social, spiritual and emotional challenges that a cancer diagnosis can bring. By connecting with patients early and becoming acquainted with their unique story and particular strengths and challenges, we are better able to meet their needs.
In addition to my clinical work, I am a clinical professor in the Division of Palliative Medicine at Ohio State as well as a founding board member of Grace House, a nonprofit residential facility for hospice patients without homes or caregivers. I am also a fellow and laureate of the American College of Physicians and a fellow of the American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine, and I have presented at meetings throughout the world on palliative care, medical ethics and medical education.
Though I'm very new to The James after 32 years of practice elsewhere, it hasn't taken long for me to feel welcome. I already feel that I'm part of a much larger team of oncologists, surgeons, nurses, therapists, social workers, chaplains and researchers all focused on helping each new patient who comes through the doors with a competent, caring and state-of-the-art treatment of their cancer.

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.
