"I take time to listen to each patient and their family about what is important to them, while educating them about the condition. My main goals for my patients are to preserve their kidney function, help them work toward urinary control and provide them with opportunities to become independent with their condition."

My Biography & Research

Biography

I’m a pediatric urologist with a special interest in neurogenic bladder, which includes a number of urinary conditions that result in lack of bladder control.

I take time to listen to each patient and their family about what is important to them, while educating them about the condition. My main goals for my patients are to preserve their kidney function, help them work toward urinary control and provide them with opportunities to become independent with their condition.

I work with an amazing team of nurses, operating room staff, office administrative support and doctors to deliver high-quality care. I also do research with other pediatric urologists, where we seek to standardize care with the goal of improving patient outcomes.

I’m proud to have been selected twice as University of Cincinnati Pediatric Educator of the Year by urology residents there. I was also recognized by my peers as Top Doctor in Cincinnati for pediatric urology, in 2019 and 2020.

In my free time I enjoy playing tennis and exercising. I’m also a huge baseball fan.
