About Me

I’m a cardiologist here at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and I specialize in cardiovascular imaging. I believe in providing my patients with specialized and individualized care, which begins with a thorough evaluation of their cardiovascular health.

When working with my patients, I listen closely to all of their concerns. I want each of my patients to be actively involved in his or her own healthcare, while we formulate a plan together for his or her cardiovascular well-being.

What I love most about Ohio State is the opportunity to do research that directly impacts my patients.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my son and husband, gardening and cooking.

Dr. Zareba continually goes out of her way to care for me. She is a kind and caring doctor. At times she has called me herself to check up on me or discuss medicine or treatment with me. She goes above and beyond to take care of her patients. I am very blessed to have her for a heart doctor.
