Dr. Szawaluk joined Ohio Heart and Vascular Center
in 2002. As a non-invasive cardiologist, he specializes in stress testing,
echocardiography and nuclear cardiology.
He completed his medical degree at Georgetown
University, an internship and
residency at Pittsburgh
in internal medicine and a fellowship at the University of Massachusetts
Medical Center in cardiovascular disease.
His cardiac career started early. He was eight years old
when he was given a stethoscope for Christmas. Once he put it around his neck,
he couldn’t bear to take it off. That was when he announced to his parents that
he was going to be a doctor.
To Dr. Szawaluk, the cardiovascular system is the most
interesting organ system, and the heart is the most interesting organ. But
these days, it’s no longer just the stethoscope that fascinates him. It’s
“watching and nurturing a physician/patient relationship over the
years--developing and maintaining that relationship.”
He and his wife, Julie, have two daughters: Madeline and
Born and raised in the New
York City area, Dr. Szawaluk maintains one vital Big
Apple connection—he loves the New York Jets.
He also enjoys staying active by working out on an elliptical cross trainer
and lifting weights.
