I am a local guy; born at the old Bethesda Hospital and grew up here in Zanesville. After graduating high school I attended The Ohio State University. I then attended medical school at Wright State University, followed by my residency at Riverside Methodist Hospital in Columbus. Being a Family practitioner I get to treat people all ages; from newborns to elderly. I enjoy getting to know my patients and helping them navigate their unique medical issues. Being able to care for patients of all ages allows me to build a bond and trust with my patients as they grow from childhood, through adolescence and into adulthood. Taking care of multiple generations of a family allows me to provide the best care I can for them. Outside of work, I like to spend time with my family and friends. I enjoy sports, both watching and attempting to play. I am an avid fan of the Buckeyes, Browns, and Cavs.
