About Me

My love of educating others is an integral part of my medical career. As a specialist in general internal medicine, I’m committed to and passionate about educating patients in areas affecting their health and lifestyle. My goal is to help them feel empowered with information and individualized recommendations so they can make the best health care decisions. I have found that it’s crucial to understand what each patient values, cares about and often fears the most.

It was initially my love of questions and the pursuit of answers that drew me to medicine. However, after I began seeing patients, I found it was the human interactions and the formation of close relationships with colleagues, staff, students, residents and especially patients, that became the most meaningful and inspiring element for me.

My time at The Ohio State University has given me the opportunity to work alongside many amazing colleagues, residents and students, all who teach me a great deal on a daily basis.

When I’m not working, I enjoy traveling, cooking and entertaining friends and family.

Dr Kreger is always thorough

Dr. Kreger always gives outstanding patient care. She had reviewed my records and recommended several things to monitor my overall health. She takes time to look at my overall health and was able to answer my questions. She was up to date on the latest findings by the CDC in regards to immunizations, as I'd had a reaction to one last year. She is very proactive and looks at your total health. For example, she is aware of my family history and makes sure to monitor my risk factors in various areas. She goes above and beyond in patient care. She is very positive and professional and practical. I am blessed to have her as my physician. She is truly a role model for other doctors.

Dr. Kreger is the BEST. She's smart, caring, informative, efficient. She always responds to my phone calls & emails night or day, weekends or weekdays very quickly. Her brilliant intelligence has guided me. Her advise has saved my life more than once. She is why my husband (also one of her patients) and I stay in Columbus. We think she is the very best doctor in the world.
