Outpatients are seen in Columbus at Upper Arlington Outpatient Care Center and at University Hospital East and also in outreach clinics in Washington Court House, Ashland, Marysville, Upper Sandusky, and Bellefontaine for ease of patient access. We are proud of our personalized approach to each and every person we care for and perennially have one of the highest patient satisfaction ratings in the Medical Center.
Ultrasound testing is intimately involved in the diagnosis and treatment of most vascular problems. We have an ICAVL-accredited vascular ultrasound lab that services both the Ross Heart Hospital and our Upper Arlington outpatient clinic. Our vascular sonographers are experienced and perform tests of the highest quality, ensuring accurate and rapid diagnosis of conditions, with results immediately available to the physicians. Many tests are done the same day of your office visit.
Outpatient and inpatient surgeries and some diagnostic tests are performed at the Richard M. Ross Heart Hospital, on the campus of The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.
