Becoming a Patient

To become a patient at the Frick Center, you should have an existing diagnosis of heart failure and arrhythmia. You will need a referral from your primary care physician or cardiologist to make your first appointment. We can help you obtain this referral when you call to schedule, or your physician can call us to schedule at 614-293-ROSS (7677). 


Unparalleled Expertise

Patients of the Frick Center receive coordinated care from a team of professionals, including a heart failure specialist, arrhythmia specialist, sleep medicine specialist, pharmacist and dietitian, in a single appointment. After your appointment, our team will develop a comprehensive plan of care for managing your diseases, and you’ll receive a full summary, including next steps. Should additional appointments or testing be needed, we’ll coordinate those with you at your visit.

A Legacy of Impact

The Frick Center was established through the generosity of local philanthropists Bob and Corrine Frick. The Fricks feel that fighting back against a disease that remains the leading cause of death for both men and women in the United States is more than personal: It is their life’s work and their legacy. With their historic gift, the Fricks have established a first-of-its-kind center to treat the intersection of these diseases and save lives for generations to come.
