About Me

As a family medicine physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I specialize in osteopathic manipulative medicine, integrative medicine, preventive and primary care. I am passionate about seeking health in my patients, optimizing function, and partnering with my patients in their journey to becoming their best selves. I strive to empower my patients to take charge of their health. I utilize a broad array of treatment modalities including osteopathic manipulative treatment, needling, and mind-body practices.

In my role as a medical educator, I enjoy sharing and developing my passion through teaching and learning alongside medical students and resident physicians. I share my passion for family medicine with my peers and community through service on the Central Ohio Academy of Family Physicians and the Ohio Academy of Family Physicians Foundation.

I love spending time with my lovely wife, our young son, and our English bulldog puppy. I enjoy cooking, reading, hiking, and self-educating on Renaissance and Reformation history.

    He is unaffectedly pleasant, calm, efficient, and followed up promptly with comments on lab results in 'My Chart'. He was careful to convey that it is my option to pursue recommended follow up tests and treatments without eliciting defensiveness to pressure.

    Dr. Sheikh was a patient, kind, thoughtful doctor. I'm happy to have established myself as a patient under his care. He listened and didn't make me feel like my problems were non-issues. He took notes and listened closely. Even his nurse said "I really like to work with him!" No negative feelings about Dr. Sheikh!

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.
