I was born and raised in a small town near Cincinnati, Ohio. Growing up in the Midwest, I have to come to appreciate the people and the lifestyle we represent. I chose to pursue my medical training in Ohio and Indiana because it allowed me to stay close to home while still receiving a world-class education. I have never regretted that choice, and I feel blessed to have now settled into practice in Central Indiana. The choice to become an oncologist was obvious for me as I matured in my medical training. I find caring for cancer patients to be a tremendously rewarding and gratifying experience. Every patient has provided me the opportunity to see into the heart and soul of people facing this life-changing illness. These patients inspire me every day to come to work and to provide for them the best possible care. I couldn’t see myself in any other profession - this is my passion.

Doctors may have more than one area of specialty interest. Board certification in a specialty area means the doctor has completed formal training and has practice experience in that specialty, and has passed the certification examination from the corresponding accredited medical specialty board.

This is NEVER normal: Passing blood or clots with bowel movements is an indication to seek medical evaluation, possibly including lab work and endoscopic evaluation (e.g., colonoscopy). If you are on anticoagulation meds (aspirin, warfarin, etc.) you should contact the prescribing physician immediately as he/she may have you stop taking them temporarily.

Not likely: Low iron is not likely responsible for your continuous menstrual bleeding. You may become iron-deficient as a result of your continued blood loss from menstruation, but low iron itself is not the cause of your ongoing menstrual bleeding. You may want to see your ob/gyn to determine why your menstrual cycles are irregular. If you can regulate these cycles, you can potentially reduce loss of iron.

Need to explain: This is because females have two x chromosomes while males have only one, so the defective gene is guaranteed to manifest in any male who carries it. Because females have two x chromosomes and haemophilia is rare, the chance of a female having two defective copies of the gene is very remote, so females are almost exclusively asymptomatic carriers of the disorder.
