"Being in the hospital is stressful. The last thing families need is the added stress of worrying if they can approach me or any other doctor or nurse caring for their child. The greatest compliment anyone could give me is that they felt comfortable with me and were not afraid to ask me questions."

My Biography & Research

Biography

As an Internal Medicine-Pediatric (Med-Peds) hospitalist at Cincinnati Children’s, I care for children and adults. I help diagnose and manage patients and their families while they are admitted to the hospital. I also work at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center.

Education is the lens through which I view clinical care. I want families and patients to understand their health and how to improve it. By sharing information and answering questions, I hopefully earn the trust of patients and empower them to care for themselves.

Many role models over the years inspired my approach to care. These leaders taught me — and are still teaching me — to serve others and ensure their needs are central to all decision making.

Being in the hospital is stressful. The last thing families need is the added stress of worrying if they can approach me or any other doctor or nurse caring for their child. The greatest compliment anyone could give me is that they felt comfortable with my care and were not afraid to ask me questions.

At Cincinnati Children’s, we use a team approach to care. We all have the same goal: to see patients improve, recover and return home. The more we include all team members — including the family — and leverage everyone's strengths, the better care we can all deliver.

I love working with residents and students to teach and help them grow as physicians. My research interests mostly include how optimizing the education and assessment of trainees can be used to improve the care and outcomes of patients. I currently serve as an Associate Program Director for the Internal Medicine Residency program and I co-direct the clinical skills course for 1st and 2nd year medical students. I have furthered my own education by finishing a Masters of Medical Education in 2017 and this upcoming academic year I will be part of a year-long education research fellowship called Education Research Scholars Program.

I am humbled to have received four Apple Teaching Awards and an Excellence in Mentorship award for my role as a faculty member at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.

In my free time, I love to hike, cycle, golf, and travel. My bucket list includes a visit to every national park in the U.S. I also enjoy listening to podcasts and audiobooks. My wife is a general pediatrician in the Cincinnati area and we have two young daughters.
