About Me

As a general neurologist at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, with over 28 years of practice, I believe in caring for patients the way I want to be cared for. To me, this means being friendly, efficient and running on time.

I enjoy working with my patients and explaining diagnosis and treatment plans, as well as answering questions they may have. I try to always be friendly with superb bedside manner. Additionally, I generally answer all phone calls and emails within four hours.

My favorite part about working at Ohio State is the ability we have to collaborate with subspecialists to provide outstanding care to our patients, as well as collaborating with those conducting meaningful research in neurology.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending my free time drumming in a band, bicycling and working on my wife’s “to do list.”

    Dr. Fahey is conducting a most thorough workup on me to diagnose my problem. He is highly skilled, compassionate, and considerate. I recommend him without reservation. I changed my care from another neurologist to him, and I am so glad that I did. What a remarkable difference!
