This man is the best doctor on Earth and the OSU James Heart Hospital is AMAZING! If you are looking for a doctor that truly knows what he's doing and will take care of you no matter what, this is the man to see. Dr. Augostini and his staff are phenomenal and I wouldn't have wanted anyone else working on me.

Dr. Augostini is patient, thorough and the best in his field. For such a large hospital, we felt we mattered with our health concerns. The staff is so friendly and courteous. It was worth the drive to have the procedure done. I would recommend him to anyone. Our room nurse, Lisa, was terrific.

Been trying to get ahold of office staff to discuss paperwork, cannot get anyone. Have left 4 voicemails. My husband left 2 and I have left 2. My husband is the patient but I am his caregiver. There should be another way to get ahold of his office instead of going through the Ross Heart Hospital operator.

Dr. Augostini is extremely skillful as a cardiologist and electrophysiologist in my opinion. I personally had experience with 2 other experts who were unable to solve my problems. Through his care and approach, I have been in sinus rhythm for the last 4 years.
