Dr. Michael Perisa


Residency: Nationwide Children’s Hospital – Columbus, OH

Q: What is your connection to our mission?

A: I was most excited to be able to help families looking for answers and help provide some coverage for the desperate need in pediatric developmental and behavioral health issues.

Q: Why do you love helping children?

A: No matter how severe the issues are that are facing a child, they are so extremely resilient and can provide so much joy in even the simplest of interactions which could brighten up anyone’s day.

Q: What are your hobbies?

A: I love being outside as much as I can chasing my dogs and two young children around. Additionally, I love tackling home projects with the skills I gained working for my father, a brick mason/carpenter.

Q: What (or who) inspires you?

A: I very much look forward to being a compassionate, stable figure for families when facing adversity or concerns regarding their child’s health and/or development.

Q: Tell us about your family. Any children? What about pets?

A: My wife and I are blessed to parent two beautiful, blonde hair, blue eyed young children: our 3.5 year old son Nolan and our 10 month old daughter Kennedy. Prior to human children, we parented 2 Siberian huskies named Tiberius and Laika whose fur can be found tumbling around our house at any given time.
