As a physiatrist, I specialize in prescribing mobility equipment and managing long-term rehabilitation needs. I’m passionate about my work because I believe in improving my patients' lives through creative solutions. My goal is to find the best fitting and functioning mobility equipment for each of my patients. As a strong believer in the importance of providing passionate healthcare, I also ensure the highest quality of individualized rehabilitation regimens and therapeutic modalities.
Mobility equipment is highly individualized depending on a patient’s needs. It has the potential to either significantly improve, if met properly, or significantly worsen a patient's health and quality of life. Therefore, it requires the same level of attention that’s used to prescribe medication or perform a medical procedure.
I enjoy working at Ohio State because of the collaborative environment and team approach to patient care. My colleagues are excellent at their jobs and fully embrace the patient centered, multi-faceted approach to problem solving, which provides our patients with the highest level of care.
In my free time I enjoy relaxing with my family, traveling, spending time outdoors, attending Ohio State football games and reading. I recently began participating in triathlons. I already loved swimming, running and cycling so it was a great way to combine all three forms of exercise.
