About Me

As an electrophysiologist, I provide treatment and management for various types of heart rhythm disorders such as tachycardia, bradycardia and ventricular arrhythmias. I believe in treating my patients the way I would like my own family to be treated. I take the time to meet with each patient and thoroughly cover all information relating to his or her health condition while encouraging them to engage and ask questions. My duties include performing various device and ablation procedures, but I am keenly interested in the preventative aspects of rhythm disorders. In pursuit of interests relating to my clinical work, I have actively involved myself in electrophysiology research for almost a decade, and published more than 50 peer-reviewed papers.

I enjoy working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center because it possesses a multidisciplinary academic aspect conducive to scholarly pursuit and an excellent patient-friendly environment.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my beloved wife, son and three daughters.
