About Me

I am a non-invasive cardiologist, professor in the Division of Cardiovascular Medicine, director of the Lipid Clinics and section director of Preventative Cardiology and Women’s Cardiovascular Health at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. I specialize in women’s cardiovascular health, prevention and cardiac imaging. I am an avid promoter, educator and media spokesperson on both prevention and women’s cardiovascular health.

My clinical and research interests include obstructive and non-obstructive coronary artery disease in women. In addition to my clinical research, I have published a number of peer-reviewed articles and book chapters. I served as the first female president of the Ohio chapter of the American College of Cardiology and am a member of several committees within the organization.

I previously served as president of the metro Columbus Board of Directors for the American Heart Association (AHA) and as a member of their Great Rivers Affiliate Board and am currently the chair of the AHA’s Cardiovascular Disease in Women and Special Populations Committee.

Additionally, I chaired the American Heart Association’s first ever scientific statement on acute myocardial infarction in women as well as their first statement on breast cancer and cardiovascular disease.

    Dr. Mehta put me at ease right away. Took my blood pressure and told me it was down. At the end of our time together she took my blood pressure and got a Truer reading. She is calm, and an excellent listener! Always a good experience. I trust her with my care.

    I like Dr. Laxmi Mehta very much. She is very thorough and understanding.

  • Reviewed on Oct 23, 2019

    Dr. Mehta was very down to earth, seemed genuinely concerned about my health and any worries I might have. She asked good questions (rather than waiting for me to ask) and made sure to respond to my concerns with information to put me at ease, not leaving the room until she knew I was satisfied. There was no feeling of being rushed with her, which I appreciate, and she said things in a way that was easy to understand. This all made me feel comfortable that I didn't needed to be pushy or advocate for myself, as I have with past providers. I left with all of my questions answered and a good understanding of my health.
