About Me

As the Director for the Division of General Internal Medicine and Geriatrics, I am particularly aware of the benefits of preventive healthcare and chronic disease management and the care for acute illnesses. I’m passionate about developing new and innovative ways to improve patient experience here at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

I think it’s important to make access to care as easy as possible for patients. I maintain optimal clinic access and offer online communication to my patients. The staff and physicians at Ohio State Wexner Medical Center are dedicated to their patients and I enjoy working with them to ensure the highest quality of care. I find extreme satisfaction in innovation and the successful treatment of our patients.

In my spare time, I enjoy relaxing with my family, reading, watching movies, cooking and gardening.

    Dr. Tayal is a class act; thoroughly professional and on top of things but also friendly and respectful. It was nice to see him training a resident; this means his good habits are being passed along. The resident himself (3rd year; can't remember name) is going to make a fine doctor.

    He is very approachable, friendly, clear, and sensible. He conveys a relaxed and respectful attitude; I never feel as if I am bothering him or asking dumb questions. He always takes his time and makes me feel good about my health.
