Biography:

As a pulmonary care specialist, I have a long interest in diagnosing and treating patients who suffer from lung ailments. I am passionate about alpha 1-antitrypsin (AAT) deficiency. This rare condition exists in individuals who do not produce enough AAT to protect the lungs from emphysema. I head the area Alpha 1 Research Registry, which supports patients with this condition. My patient care focus is to help patients understand their disease. Knowledge promotes better adherence to treatments and helps in symptom management. The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center brings together the best physicians in primary and specialty care. With so many expert colleagues on our team, I always know where to turn for difficult questions. In my free time I enjoy reading, photography and sports with my grandkids. I also enjoy studying the night sky ... even in cloudy Ohio!
