Marco Bonta, MD, MBA, FACS
Medical Director, Trauma Services, OhioHealth Riverside Methodist Hospital


What made you decide to become a physician?
I decided on trauma surgery as a career because the patients are young, and the benefit to the patient from the trauma team therefore lasts longer.

What hobbies do you have or what do you like to do in your spare time?
In my spare time, I shoot aggressively at targets but not living things, hand load my ammunition, listen to high fidelity audio, and try to be around young people as much as possible.

If you could be a superhero who would it be?
I would be a prehospital provider. All my patients are horizontal, waist-high, and have perfect lighting. The prehospital team usually has none of those things.

What was the first concert you attended?
Doobie Brothers - my son has never heard of them. 

Where were you born and raised?
I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio.

What was your first job?
An "orderly" (also known as "male attendant") in the emergency room at Riverside. I gave a urinal to Bing Crosby when his pacemaker battery died.
