About Me

As a primary care physician at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I specialize in women's health, including obstetrical care and preventive health care. I love having the ability and opportunity to help patients of all ages. I am also certified as an ALSO (Advanced Life Support in Obstetrics) instructor.

I believe in treating the whole patient, not just the disease a patient presents. For me, this means involving each patient in his or her own care as much as possible and making team based care decisions.

I am passionate about bringing personal experience to my patients' care and providing them with a good experience, especially when it comes to the very sensitive areas of child bearing and reproductive health. I want to help women make informed decisions when it comes to preventing unwanted pregnancies so that we can have happier and healthier children and families.

The Ohio State University has always held high standards in both academics and medicine. I love being a part of a large health system where I have access to so many resources for both myself and my patients.

In my free time, I enjoy relaxing with my family, reading and watching movies.

    Dr. Panchal is a blessing. I wish I could see her for everything but she's only one person. LOL. She has been taking good care of me for years and I'm grateful for her.

    Dr. Panchal rates highest next to my primary care doctor I had before Dr. P. He passed away but was my primary doctor for forty years. Glad I have Dr. Panchal as my next best primary care doctor. Hope I never have to find another one.
