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.

    LOVE Dr. Petri!!

  • Reviewed on Aug 18, 2019

    It was good, but when I had a health concern about aggressive period cramps she didn't ask a lot about it and cut me off two times. I just wasn't sure if she was as concerned as I was. It seemed like she assumed it was just an age thing without asking a ton of questions. Maybe I was just more concerned than I should be. She gave some good advice though and the rest of my care was pleasant, she even asked about my schooling and summer which was thoughtful.

    This was my 1st visit, to establish care. Dr. Petri-Pickstone listened very carefully to my health history a FMH.

    Yes, I had to wait a little bit in the exam room but that was fine because I know Dr. Petri always answers all questions and listens to my concerns. I am sure she does this for everyone and treats us like we are her only patient that day. She is caring as well as professional and a skilled physician.
