About Me

As a family medicine physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I specialize in disease management, preventive medicine, pediatrics, gynecology, contraception education and women’s health. I treat patients with a myriad of conditions including anxiety, depression, hypertension, diabetes, arthritis and osteoarthritis. I also provide joint injections, mole removal, pap smears and endometrial biopsies, along with other minor procedures.

I have always wanted to work in family medicine and am happy to have found my calling in life. I love my job and my patients; it’s a privilege to take care of patients and their families. I enjoy taking care of the entire patient, not just treating symptoms, and providing as much preventative care as possible. I’m very interested in how family dynamics can affect a person’s health.

My favorite part about working at Ohio State is the wealth of resources available, including a wide range of specialists for my patients. Additionally, The Department of Family Medicine provides great support for my professional goals. I also enjoy helping medical students throughout the process of medical school, especially nontraditional students.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and cooking.

Dr. Petri is an excellent MD. She cares deeply for her patients. She listens to what you have to say as well as commanding excellent communication skills.

Dr. Petri is great; I've been seeing her for so long that she knows me and my quirks, and that makes me feel very confident about her advice. She treats everything, not just the one thing I go in for--so for example, she knows I suffer from anxiety so she explains things thoroughly so I don't leave fretting about anything.

I LOVE my care provider. I feel I can (and have) shared my most personal concerns. This office cares for my entire family and have done so for greater than 25 yrs.

She did get back to me about my test results but no real directions on how to proceed. Even after I left a message. Just a generic response.

No issue, as expected.

She's always concerned about me and how I have been doing. I feel she really cares about my wellbeing.

Reviewed on Nov 06, 2017

After waiting over 2 hours to be seen the doctor was in the room less than 9 minutes. She did not ask for any of my concerns and when I tried to voice them she talked down to me as if my concerns were not real problems. She then walked out of the room as I was still attempting to get answers. She did not provide me any referrals or answers. Also when my blood work came back with issues she did not respond for over a week and with multiple emails and calls.

Reviewed on Oct 16, 2017

Dr. Petri made sure I got my flu shot and had my blood checked. I appreciated her concern.
