About MeAs 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.

Consulting and Related Relationships
At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.
As of 03/26/2018, Dr. Afzal has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
