Additional Information

Physician Bio

Dr. Pelberg specializes in general cardiology, preventative cardiology, diagnostic coronary angiography and cardiac imaging (echocardiography, nuclear cardiology and cardiac CT angiography). He is also one of very few Level III-trained physicians in coronary CT angiography.

Before joining The Ohio Heart & Vascular Center in 2002, he was in private practice in West Palm Beach, FL. Since coming to Ohio, his professional reputation has soared. He was selected to the 2009/2010 “Who’s Who Among Executives and Professionals in the Field of Research, Medicine, and Healthcare.”

Dr. Pelberg is a fellow of the American College of Cardiology, the American Heart Association, the American Society of Echocardiology, the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology and the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography. He is the Director of the Midwest Regional Working Group of the Society of Cardiovascular Computed Tomography and a member of the credentialing committee for this organization. In addition, he is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine at the University of Cincinnati.

He authored the Cardiac CT Angiography Manual (Springer 2007), which has also been translated into Chinese and distributed in China. He has just finished his second book, “Vascular CT Angiography Manual,” in which he focused on vascular imaging. Dr. Pelberg has also published many peer-reviewed research articles in major cardiovascular journals.

To Dr. Pelberg, cardiology is the perfect mix of technology, procedural medicine and the kind of care that allows a physician to build long-term relationships with his patients. He emphasizes that these relationships are the most rewarding aspects of his job.

In his words, “I love the intellectual aspect of cardiology. I love the social aspect of cardiology. I love working with people and enjoy the satisfaction of watching my patients live longer and better lives.”

Dr. Pelberg and his wife have three young sons. He appreciates time with his family by playing softball, chess and cards.
