About Me

As an electrophysiologist, I treat patients with atrial fibrillation, atrial flutter, supraventricular tachycardia, ventricular tachycardia and implant cardiovascular electronic implantable devices. At Ohio State, I am able to place patients at the center of my care plan, where I have access to cutting edge technology and some of the most advanced research in the field in order to ensure that patients receive the best care possible. I enjoy working in a field that is rapidly developing to meet the needs of patients with heart arrhythmia. From a research standpoint, Ohio State opens many doors to test new methods that ultimately benefit our patients.

In my free time I enjoy reading, mentoring my children, traveling with my family and exploring the world with them. I also love to give back to my community. Improving the lives of those around me allows me to feel fulfilled as a father, a husband and a doctor.
