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.

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.
