I’m a hematologist specializing in acute myeloid leukemia, acute lymphoblastic leukemia, chronic myelogenous leukemia, myelodysplastic syndromes and other blood cancers. I attended medical school at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and completed my internal medicine internship and residency at the Cleveland Clinic and my hematology and medical oncology fellowship at the University of Maryland Marlene and Stewart Greenebaum Cancer Center. I am currently an assistant professor of Internal Medicine in the Division of Hematology here at Ohio State. I was rated in the top 10 percent of physicians in the nation for patient satisfaction in 2016.

In my research, I examine novel experimental treatments that may bring us closer to finding cures for cancer. In addition to being published more than a dozen times, I have been fortunate to present my research findings at hospitals across the country. I also serve as a member of the American Society of Hematology, the American Society of Clinical Oncology and as a panel member for the National Comprehensive Cancer Network.
