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 was very dismissive, she didn't think I needed to see a cardiologist apparently and made me feel like I was totally wasting her time, I mean she was just rude. Yes I'm in overall good health but so was my husband and he had a huge aortic aneurysm. It was found because his cardiologist did his job. I have a history of heart skipping. I was concerned about it. Just because I run marathons doesn't mean you should act like I'm not worth your time! Rude!
