I played football at The Ohio State University from 1989 to 1993. The physicians who cared for me when I was a student-athlete inspired me to pursue a career in medicine. I specialize in sports medicine, which focuses on providing care for injuries and medical conditions that affect a patient’s ability to be active throughout their lifetime. These include acute sports injuries, overuse sports injuries and chronic musculoskeletal conditions. I believe in providing personalized care that focuses on treatment that addresses a patient’s medical needs and individual goals. As a former athlete, I believe in working as a team with a patient to achieve the best approach and treatment for each individual. I’m passionate about my career because I am able to work with patients to help them remain active and healthy across their lifetime. What I enjoy the most is when I am able to help athletes of all skill levels return to the activities that they enjoy.
