As a primary care physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I love having the ability and opportunity to help patients of all ages. I specialize in women's health, including obstetrical care, contraceptive and preventive health care. I believe in treating the whole patient, not just the disease a patient presents. For me, this means involving each patient in his or her own care as much as possible.

Research Interests

My interests include women's and maternal child health. Also as a residency faculty member, I aim to be a good clinician and a great teacher.
