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 B.S. in biochemistry in the honors program at the University of Michigan. He then received his M.D 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.
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. He feels very fortunate to return home and care for Tristate patients. "I had always planned to return to practice in my hometown, but this intent became even stronger after I met my wife, Rachel, who is also from Cincinnati. Now that we are parents, we can't think of a better city to raise our daughter. This city has the best sense of community and appreciation for family that I have experienced," said Dr. Pelchovitz.
