About Me

As a cardiac electrophysiologist, I provide treatment and management for all kinds of heart rhythm disorders. I believe in treating my patients the way I would want my own family to be treated. I take the time to meet with my patients and thoroughly cover all information relating to their condition while encouraging them to engage and ask questions. Besides performing various cardiac device implantations and catheter ablation procedures, I’m also keenly interested in preventative aspects of heart rhythm disorders.

My research interests include outcomes of emerging technology in heart rhythm disorders and stroke prophylaxis with left atrial appendage closure devices. I have actively involved myself in electrophysiology research for over a decade, and published more than 100 peer-reviewed papers.

I enjoy working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center because it gives me access to the most innovative and evidence-based treatments.
