My Biography & Research

Biography

I discovered adolescent medicine during medical school and immediately knew it was the best fit for me. Throughout my training, I was inspired by providers who treated their teenage patients with empathy and respect and skillfully helped them navigate the unique set of challenges that come with adolescence. I am excited by the opportunity to make a lifelong impact on teens at a very crucial stage of their development. My teen patients are some of the brightest and most resilient people I know.

As an adolescent medicine physician, I provide primary care for teenagers and young adults, and also work with young people with eating disorders and reproductive health issues. My goals are to make sure my teenage patients feel heard and respected and that they participate in their own healthcare as equal partners. I also want to empower them with the knowledge to make the best, most informed decisions about their health.

When I have free time, I enjoy exploring Cincinnati with my wife, hiking, and watching college football and basketball. I’m a huge Duke Blue Devils fan, and I also enjoy video games.
