Background

Dr. Oza has been practicing Family Medicine since 2005. She is a graduate of the University of Bombay, Dr. D. Y. Patil Medical College and completed her residency at The Ohio State University Family Medicine residency program. She practices in the ambulatory care setting at Outpatient Care Lewis Center and also provides newborn care at OSU's main hospital and Inpatient care at OSU East hospital with the family medicine residents.

Clinical Interests

As a faculty member of The Ohio State University Department of Family Medicine, I have the opportunity to be able to teach and provide patient care. I enjoy teaching medical students and residents and mentoring them through their learning years. My special interests include cardiovascular medicine, women's health and chronic disease management. However, as a family physician I enjoy the full spectrum of family medicine caring for newborns to geriatric patients. I feel privileged to care for patients and their families. My goal is to empower patients with knowledge to help them get involved in their own care and create a trusting and meaningful patient-physician relationship.
