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.

    Dr. Albrechta is an excellent physician. I've never had to wait (beyond 1-2 minutes) to be taken back to an exam room. Dr. Albrechta always came to the exam room in timely fashion. He is never in a "bad mood"or dismissive. He always asks the appropriate questions related to my health conditions. He gives great, understandable medical advice. I have never had a "bad" experience with Dr. Albrechta. I'd highly recommend him.

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.
