Bio

I am a central Ohio native and received my medical training at The Ohio State Univ. I am Board Certified and am a member of the American Urogyn Society. I was the first Columbus gyn to be accredited by the Council for Gyn Endoscopy in both laparoscopy and hysteroscopy.

I have more than 20 published article. My wife and I are high school sweethearts and we have 9 children.

This was very helpful. Thanks! I'll have to make a return visit to the dermatologist regarding the original removal as this spot has turned, remained white and maybe grown in size

Thanks for your quick reply! I have already seen a dr. about the cysts, but all they found was a lot of fluid. the groin pain just started over a week ago. Thanks again!
