About Me

As a palliative medicine physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I specialize in cardiac palliative medicine, mechanical circulatory support and heart failure.

I provide comprehensive symptom, psychosocial and spiritual support for patients with advanced illness. I work to help our medical team formulate patient-centered and family-centered care plans through preparedness planning and addressing my patients’ goals.

My favorite part about working here at Ohio State is the opportunity to work in a collaborative and cutting-edge environment where we are able to provide excellent patient care.

When I’m not working, I enjoy reading, bowling and following college sports. I’m also interested in photography.
