About Me

I became an obstetrician-gynecologist because I am passionate about empowering my patients to make reproductive health decisions based on their unique needs. I make it a priority to educate my patients about all of their health care options and ensure they are actively involved at every stage of their care. It’s a privilege to be able to support my patients through life-changing events and I value the relationships we’re able to build.

I specialize in managing both normal and complicated pregnancies. I provide evidence-based gynecologic, preventive, contraceptive, and gender-affirming care. I also care for patients who’ve experienced a miscarriage and treat conditions like abnormal bleeding and sexually transmitted infections.

At Ohio State, I love that I have the opportunity to help medical students and residents learn and grow at such a formative stage. From bedside teaching to health care policy discussions and career advice, working with learners is a highly rewarding part of my job at Ohio State.

In my free time, I enjoy walking my dog, baking, and reading.

    I am very grateful to have gotten an appointment to establish care with Dr. Kerestes in such a timely manner. I had a very poor experience In the OSU ED prior to my visit with her. My condition had worsened significantly while waiting for an appointment and I was very scared. She was very understanding listened attentively to my concerns. She recommended she address my concern with a procedure in the office or informed me I would have to go to an OR. I am so grateful she completed the procedure in her office and that I can return for follow-up care.

    Dr. K was amazing. This was my first time seeing her and I am so glad that I made the switch before turning to a fertility clinic. Dr. K was well versed in my medical history, explained all of my options to me in a way that I understood, and made sure to answer any questions or hesitancies that I had. I felt validated throughout my appointment and also very hopeful!
