About Me

As a family medicine physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I specialize in women’s and men’s health, travel medicine, preventive care, preconception care, pediatrics, prenatal care, health promotion and the management of chronic diseases including diabetes, hypertension and heart disease.

I believe in providing quality, patient-centered, relationship- and evidence-based care to individuals and the community. I am passionate about making a positive impact on the lives of my patients, students and residents.

I love being part of the Ohio State family. I enjoy being part of a world-renown academic medical center where I’m able to help train medical students to fall in love with family medicine and prepare residents to make an impact on the nation’s healthcare.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending what little free time I have visiting my children and grandchildren, traveling and rooting for The Ohio State Buckeyes.

Dr. Miser is the most thorough and professional physician I have ever been to. It was my first visit to this practice as I had been going to another practice for the last 20 years and was unsatisfied with the level of care they provided. Dr. Miser spent over 30 minutes getting to know me and listening to and answering every question or concern that I spoke with him about. He even asked me to follow up with him on my blood pressure readings so he could monitor how I am doing. He also wanted to make sure everything else looked okay so he order some blood work to check my levels. I was able to walk across the hall and get the lab work done right then and had results by the next day. I was blown away by this experience

What can I say? Dr. Miser is the best! I feel more than fortunate that he is my doctor. I feel blessed. For no real good reason I used to be apprehensive of medical care in general. Now, thanks to Dr. Miser, I look forward to visiting him and my whole team @ OSU.
