About Me

Specialty care is a strength at the Ohio State University. I try to collaborate with my colleagues to provide the best neurological and neuromuscular clinical care and research options for my patients. I treat my patients as I would a family member, and I work hard to solve and treat their neurological conditions. I develop meaningful relationships with my patients by recognizing their value as a whole person rather than just their diagnosis.

As a neurologist, I specialize in neuromuscular disorders and electromyography. I find the nervous system fascinating and feel a great desire to help patients suffering from neurological and neuromuscular conditions.

I thoroughly enjoy the combination of academic and clinical environments here at The Ohio State University. This balance optimizes the quality of our patients’ care. It is a pleasure to work with the Ohio State medical students and residents. They help provide a team environment and even reenergize my passion for medicine.

When I’m not working, spending time with my family is always my top priority. My other interests include basketball, running and enjoying the outdoors.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 03/28/2017, Dr. Hoyle has reported no financial relationships with medical device, research and/or drug companies.
