Health is a top priority, but finding the doctor to meet your health needs can be a challenging task. To make it easier, we’ve put together a list of 1,325 doctors who are registered in Montgomery County, encompassing 94 specialties. A number of these doctors also practice in the surrounding counties including Warren, Clinton, Clark, Butler, Greene, Champaign, Darke, Miami and Shelby.

New this year: we have included cardiologists throughout the Dayton region who are affiliated with hospital networks based in Montgomery County.

Our directory is taken from the State Medical Board of Ohio Rosters of Registered Physicians (MDs and DOs) 2014 list of registered physicians in Montgomery County. Using hospital provided lists, we cross-checked physicians by hospital affiliation, last known office location, specialty and name, eliminating those who were shown as no longer practicing, not practicing in Montgomery County, or could not be found. We included the office locations we were able to confirm. Doctors are listed under the first specialty they listed with the State Medical Board of Ohio.

Questions or Concerns regarding listing content should be directed to the State Medical Board of Ohio.

 

 

Dr. James C. Barclay MD
Psychiatry and Neuropsychiatry
Kettering Behavioral Medicine Center

Dr. James C. Barclay always knew he wanted to be a doctor, and during his third year of medical school chose to pursue psychiatry.

“People have to understand there is a biological, genetic, physical basis behind mental illness. Most people think that a person can snap out of it,” says Dr. Barclay. “People don’t bring it onto themselves. It’s not a weakness.”

Many of Dr. Barclay’s patients have severe mental illnesses, like depression and schizophrenia. He treats patients using therapy and medicine.

“Every year there are a few new medications that are produced, which work better, quickly and produce less side effects,” says Dr. Barclay.

While Dr. Barclay has a clientele base, he receives many referrals, usually from primary care physicians.

“One of the signs to look for is when someone who is normally active and then withdraws,” says Dr. Barclay. “They might not spend time with their family and friends like they used to. They are out of character.”

He says that some patients’ mental illness is set off by what people see on TV and hear on the radio.

“It’s more of an issue now, especially with the economy and layoffs,” says 
Dr. Barclay. “PTSD (posttraumatic stress disorder) can induce fear.”

Dr. Barclay received his medical degree from Wright State University School of Medicine and he completed his residency there, too. He has been Kettering’s Medical Director for Psychiatry for two years and has been with the Kettering Health Network for nine years.


 

 

Dr. Ravi Elluru, MD PhD
Advanced Pediatric Otolaryngology
Dayton Children’s Hospital

Dr. Ravi Elluru loves to make people laugh at Dayton Children’s Hospital, especially the kids 
he treats.

“They are sweet and loving,” says Dr. Elluru.

He talks about a 20-month-old girl, who always says, “Hi,” and has memorized everyone’s name on one of the upper floors in Dayton Children’s.

“It just makes you smile, even if you start the day with a frown,” says Dr. Elluru, a father with two daughters, ages 9 and 11.

A world-renowned advanced otolaryngologist, Dr. Elluru’s profession is better described as an ear, nose and throat (ENT) doctor.

“It’s not just the child. It’s the parents, too. All are incredibly connected and I want to provide them with reassurance, because parents are handing you the most important thing, their child,” says Dr. Elluru.

Some of the conditions Dr. Elluru treats are head and neck tumors, allergies, obstructive sleep apnea, snoring and airway reconstruction, among others.

“A lot of what we treat are quality-of-life issues,” says Dr. Elluru.

He says that clear communication is very important, because it helps parents understand treatment options and educates them on the condition. “I tell families that, ‘I want you to be on the same page as we move forward,’” says Dr. Elluru.

Dr. Elluru attended The University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center at Dallas, Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine for his residency and Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center for his fellowship.


 

 

Dr. Ronald Hale MD, MPH
Radiation Oncology
Public Health and General Preventive Medicine
Good Samaritan North Health Center and Miami Valley Hospital

Until he hit his early 20s, 
Dr. Ronald Hale tried to convince himself that he didn’t want to be a doctor. He started school as an aerospace engineer but life had a different plan and he says it was 
“a true calling.”

After losing nearly everything during Hurricane Katrina in 2005, including his family’s home, belongings and his practice location, Dr. Hale began working first at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base Cancer Center and then Good Samaritan Hospital in its cancer center, which is a leader in prostate brachytherapy.

“There is a better understanding of using the combination of radiation and chemotherapy,” he says. “We are going to see breakthroughs.”

Using the latest technology, he administers radiation therapy and, using intensity-modulated radiation (IMRT), can target tumors while sparing healthy tissue from radiation. The treatments used also reduce side effects and increase the number of patients cured.

“When I have a patient that is despondent, to see that they are suffering and then later have them walk out with their life back is so rewarding,” says Dr. Hale.

Dr. Hale received his medical degree from the State University of New York at Buffalo School of Medicine and trained for his master’s of public health from John Hopkins University School of Hygiene and Public Health. He completed his residencies in general preventative medicine from John Hopkins University as well. He completed his residency in radiation oncology from the University of Rochester James P. Wilmot Cancer Center.


 


Dr. Eleina Mikhaylov, MD
Neurology
Good Samaritan Hospital, Miami Valley Hospital

Choosing to be a neurologist was an option for Dr. Eleina Mikhaylov because she enjoyed biology, tutoring, and had spent time volunteering and shadowing at hospitals during her early college days.

“My mom was an ER doctor, so she always had interesting stories to tell,” says Dr. Mikhaylov.

While there were other paths she could have taken, Dr. Mikhaylov knew that the brain and spinal cord made the most sense for her.

“It’s organized and I like that about it,” she says. “I not only get to investigate but I get to help patients get rid of the pain and get back to living a normal life.”

Dr. Mikhaylov meets with patients , who need help managing their neurologic conditions, such as brain aneurysms, strokes, and epilepsy at multiple Premier Health hospitals.

“Everything affects the brain,” says Dr. Mikhaylov. “We have to go back to the pediatric years to look at what might have factored into the reason they are in my office and need treatment. It can be very time consuming but interesting.”

She not only helps her patients understand their condition, but works with medical students from Wright State University as well.

“It’s rewarding to share knowledge with them, because it’s so different from a book,” says Dr. Mikhaylov. “They get to interact with patients.”

She attended Wayne State University School of Medicine in Detroit and completed her neurology residency at Detroit Receiving Hospital, Detroit Medical Center, Harper University Hospital, Children’s Hospital of Michigan, and the John D. Dingell VA Medical Center. She completed her clinical neurophysiology fellowship at Detroit Receiving Hospital, Harper University Hospital and the Children’s Hospital of Michigan.


 

 

Dr. Deepthi R. Mosali MD
Cardiology
Cardiology Specialists of Dayton, Kettering Health Network

During medical school, Dr. Deepthi R. Mosali had an interest in internal medicine and physiology, but discovered she really liked cardiology and functions of the heart.

“Medicine kind of fell in my lap, but it was the best thing that could have happened,” she says. “When you see your patient smile because they are feeling so much better, it’s very rewarding.”

Dr. Mosali began practicing in 2006 and has since been a part of the Cardiology Specialists of Dayton and the Kettering Health Network.

“The camaraderie here trickles down into the environment,” she says. “ We are constantly updating each other. You realize that some things that were prime three to four years ago have changed. The field of cardiology is constantly evolving.”

Some of the changes in her field include stress MRIs, therapeutics, new medications, robotic surgery and mitral regurgitaton (Mitraclip).

Most of Dr. Mosali’s patients are 60 to 70 years of age, but there are occasional patients in their upper 20s.

She says that exercise and healthy eating are lifestyle changes that could help prevent heart issues.

Dr. Mosali graduated from MR Medical College, Gulbarga University, India and received her bachelor degrees in Medicine and Surgery. At Gandhi General Hospital, Secunderabad, India, she completed her studies and accreditation. In 1996, she worked at Massachusetts General Hospital on the National Registry for Myocardial Infarction project under Dr. Michael Pfifter. She completed her internship at the VA Health Care System under Boston University School of Medicine and completed her medical residency at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. She also completed a year of chief residency at the University of Massachusetts. Dr. Mosali also completed fellowships at Boston University and the University of Cincinnati.
