The Regional Neurology And Sleep Medicine Institute


Welcome to my patients and colleagues

I am pleased to announce the expansion of Regional Neurology and Sleep Medicine Institute (DBA also University Neurology and Sleep Medicine). I have offices in Columbus at the Polaris Mall area, and the other office in Marion OH (in the BKC office) and recently opened in Marysville.  I’ve opened my practice to serve your patients having neurological concerns as well as patients in need of evaluations of sleep problem and Opioid addiction. We are also expecting to open soon a comprehensive syncope, balance/dizziness evaluation center.

Who I am and what I believe

My name is Dr. Eskender Getachew M.D, R.Ph. I am a Neurologist, specialist in Adult and Pediatric sleep medicine and addiction Medicine. I am also a pharmacist.  I received my undergraduate degree from Purdue University School of Pharmacy and worked as a pharmacist for about six years.

I completed my doctorate of medicine at Medical College of Ohio. My post-graduate training includes a neurology residency at Cleveland Clinic and a fellowship in pediatric and adult medicine at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center.  I am board certified in Neurology, Sleep medicine and board eligible in Addiction medicine..

My goal is that our practice will be much more than merely a “doctor’ office” or a “sleep lab”, instead, I want our practice to be a place where children and adults find support, answers, and direction. We look forward to serving you and your patient’s Neurologic, Sleep and addiction treatment needs.
