About Me

As an interventional cardiologist, I specialize in complex coronary artery disease, valve disorders and chronic total occlusions of coronaries. I believe that medical care should be a team effort among the physician, medical staff, family and most importantly, the patient. I strive to provide individualized care that’s tailored specifically to my patients’ needs and do my best to simplify complex problems so they can make informed decisions about treatment plans. I’m motivated to positively influence the health and lives of others.

It’s exciting being part of such a great university and academic medical center, and I appreciate the opportunity to work with many talented colleagues and providers at Ohio State. I also enjoy participating in clinical trials as well as teaching and mentoring the physicians of the future. My primary research interest is translational research that explores unique family genetics of early onset coronary artery disease.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling.

    Mazz is ALWAYS great and ALWAYS spends time with me no matter how his day is going. He cares about all things not just my heart health. He also involves me in decision processes and doesn't just say this is how it's going to be done, unless he needs to be stern with me and there have been those times too. I drive 80 miles to see him first because he is always pleasant and knowledgeable and second because he's at OSU but I would follow this provider if he changed systems too.
