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."

In addition, he is an Assistant Professor of Clinical Medicine at the University of Cincinnati.

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.
