Dr. Pelchovitz specializes in cardiac electrophysiology and sees patients in the office and performs procedures to treat many different types of arrhythmias, including catheter ablation and pacemaker/defibrillator implant procedures.
Dr. Pelchovitz is a Cincinnati native and graduate of Sycamore High School. He received a bachelor degree in biochemistry in the honors program at the University of Michigan. He then received his medical degree at the University of Pennsylvania where he was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha Medical Honor Society. He completed a residency in internal medicine at the Massachusetts General Hospital and fellowships in cardiology and cardiac electrophysiology at Northwestern University. During this time he won the prestigious American Heart Association Laennec Young Clinician Award and was a finalist for the American College of Cardiology Young Investigator Award. He has authored several peer reviewed research publications. Dr. Pelchovitz was the first in the United States to implant the Boston Scientific Resonate ICD.
He enjoys caring for patients of all ages and was drawn to the electrophysiology field due to the treatment opportunities available to eliminate many heart rhythm issues that have plagued people for many years. Dr. Pelchovitz feels very fortunate to bring advanced electrophysiology care back to his hometown. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and kids, listening to music, and playing ice hockey.
