About Me

As a sports medicine physician, I provide evidence-based, individualized care and take the time to get to know my patients and their unique conditions. I have found that educating individuals on their course of treatment and building confidence in the patient-physician relationship leads to the best outcomes. Because I’ve experienced several injuries throughout my own sports career, I’m better able to relate to what my patients are going through. I love seeing people improve and return to the activities that they love.

I enjoy working at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center because of the special camaraderie that is shared among my colleagues. I also enjoy the opportunity to work with the next generation of physicians through various stages in the learning process.

In my free time I enjoy going to local sports events, concerts, the Columbus Zoo, local breweries, watching movies and spending time with my family and friends.

Good experience, he gave me easy to understand information about what's is going on, he listen to what I had to say, Dr. Steven M. Albrechta I would recommend my family & friends to your office.

Reviewed on Aug 27, 2018

Dr. Albrechta is a very kind, knowledgeable & genuinely concerned physician. Unfortunately, I've got a very atypical, complicated surgical & medical history and most of that treatment is handled by specialists. Dr. Albrechta is a very well-rounded physician as to knowledge; however, my specialists have informed me that any PCP will likely not be able to fully appreciate my conditions, treatment required, level of pain, etc... Of course, this is not a "slight" towards Dr. Albrechta as I feel that as far as PCPs go....he is extremely qualified. It's difficult as a "layperson" to relay what the specialists tell me to Dr. Albrechta. I would recommend Dr. Albrechta (and I have already done so) to friends & family.
