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.

    Always a wonderful experience seeing Dr. Panchal. She's very knowledgeable, compassionate and thorough with her visits - even if it's just a well-check. I recommend her as a PCP to many - absolute best PCP I've ever encountered!

    My care provider is number one in my mind. She reminds me of my first primary care doctor I had when I first moved to Columbus in 1969.

    Dr. Panchal met with me to discuss my medications for ADHD and mood issues. She was knowledgeable about my history, listened to my concerns, and came up with a medication plan t help me. She makes me feel good about seeking help. She doesn't make me feel like I'm bothering her with my questions, and she is a compassionate, engaged doctor. I just love her!
