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 and Community 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.

    I came into contact with Dr. Petri-Pickstone in early 2017 after my heart operation and prostate operation. I saw three different recommended physicians at that time. Each one told me it was going to be the first and last time would see them because they were moving on to a different location. I asked Dr. Petri-Pickstone is this going to be the first and last time I see you? She graciously answered me I have been here for over 20 years and I am going to be your physician. Since then I have found doctor Dr. Petri-Pickstone to be very attentive and she has excellent communication skills with me as a patient. As a patient I have become very confident in her expertise.
