"I believe that each patient and family is unique, and I treat them as individuals with the goal of improving their lives."

My Biography & Research

Biography

As a pediatric endocrinologist, I specialize in treating children and adolescents who have diabetes mellitus, insulin resistance, obesity and cardiovascular disease. I believe that each patient and family is unique, and I treat them as individuals with the goal of improving their lives.

In addition to treating patients, I’m also involved in research. My colleagues and I are looking for ways to reduce the frequency of diabetes and obesity and the complications associated with these conditions. I focus on the epidemiology and genetics of obesity, insulin resistance, abnormal carbohydrate metabolism and their relationships to the development and progression of cardiovascular disease. My research on diabetes and obesity has been continuously funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for more than 20 years.

When I’m not helping patients or engaged in research, I enjoy spending time with my family. I also like to read, hike and follow the University of Cincinnati Bearcats.
