AboutThe Heart Attack Stroke Prevention Center of Central Ohio

Located right off Wilson Bridge Road, we at The Heart Attack & Stroke Prevention Center of Central Ohio are dedicated to helping patients maintain and treat their cardiovascular health. We provide a partnership between medical and dental health to best address any risk factors of heart attack or stroke.

Dr. Goulder, MD, has been a board-certified cardiologist for over thirty years. Throughout these years, he has paid close attention to the underlying cause of heart disease: inflammation. Since there is a link between inflammation and periodontal disease, we can work closely with your dentist to ensure your total health. Or, you can work directly with our dentist, Dr. Barbara McClatchie, DDS.

As a husband and wife team, Drs. Goulder and McClatchie are proud to lead the first and only medical center in the United States with an accredited cardiologist and dentist practicing the BaleDoneen method in one facility. To schedule an appointment or learn more about our services, call us at 614-360-9386 today.

Meet Dr. Goulder

Dr. Eric Goulder is a board-certified cardiologist has been practicing cardiology for more than thirty years. Over this time, Dr. Goulder has practiced what is called “standard of care” cardiology. It is based on guidelines that are developed from medical research to obtain the best outcomes for large populations. While that is fine as far as it goes, he now feels that he wants to treat each patient based upon his/her particular situation and genetic make-up. We are all a little different, and while a cookbook recipe works well for large groups, it may not be right for you in particular; You are a group of one.

While Dr. Goulder has always enjoyed practicing invasive and clinical cardiology, he has always had a strong interest in preventive cardiology as well. I have been somewhat frustrated over his years of practice by knowing that there must be more to the story of what causes coronary artery disease beyond the classically described risk factors (hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol, smoking family history, sedentary lifestyle). There were always those patients with coronary disease who did not fit the mold of the classic risk factors. After having taken the Bale/Doneen Preceptorship, Dr. Goulder has now been exposed to a whole new arena of ways to slow the progression of coronary disease and even prevent its occurrence. It is this exciting new relationship between coronary disease and the many underlying inflammatory processes that is the key to stopping heart disease in its tracks. This is also where the Oral-Systemic approach, the relationship between dentists and medical physicians becomes so important.
