Provider Background

About John W. Tyznik, MD

I grew up in Grandview, and moved to Gahanna in 1987, where I have lived and worked since then. My high school sweetheart, Jude O'Grady, and I have lived down the street from the office for 30 years (married for 40!). We keep in touch with our busy kids, Katie, Pat, Mike and Tom, and visit when we can. Jude and I have been fitness fans for years, I've run four marathons (3:28 personal best), done the Arnold Pump and Run, and Jude has done dozens of half marathons.

We both completed the American Lung Association "Fight for Air" 40 story Rhodes Tower climb, participate in the New Albany Walking Classic every fall, and walk at Creekside most Saturdays with the Gahanna Get Moving Team.
