I seek to provide comprehensive primary care to my patients and to create an environment for the ongoing continuous improvement on provision of care to the patients across our community. To achieve these goals, I have engaged in population health efforts as the medical director for the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center accountable care organization (Ohio State Health ACO, Inc.), chief clinical officer of PrimaryOne Health FQHC (a Federally Qualified Health Center) and as vice chair of community health.These roles have allowed me to form interdisciplinary teams of care providers, engage in ongoing patient oriented translational research projects and provide leadership towards fulfilling the mission of these institutions.

I have been a practicing family physician since 2003. I graduated from Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine in Athens, Ohio, and completed my residency in family medicine at Firelands Hospital in Sandusky, Ohio, where I served as chief resident. I also completed a fellowship in health policy training through the New York Institute of Technology in Long Island, New York. I'm an associate professor of clinical family medicine at The Ohio State University.
