About Me

As an obstetrician and gynecologist, I see patients throughout the multiple stages of their reproductive life. The relationships that I build with my patients are very rewarding. Strong physician-patient relationships provide the best possible care because a patient is able to work with a doctor they know and trust.

When providing medical care, I consider each patient’s unique personal and healthcare needs and goals. I enjoy keeping my patients healthy and satisfied with their experience here at Ohio State. I am particularly passionate about women’s healthcare and I serve as an advocate for reproductive and LGBT health.

I truly enjoy working in an institution where there is strong camaraderie among all the different specialties. Here at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, patients are able to receive top notch and quality healthcare.

When I’m not working I like to spend my free time traveling, cooking and walking my dogs.

Dr. Malone diagnosed an issue that I had gone to three doctors for previously. She was incredibly compassionate and understood health concerns regarding queer/trans that most physicians do not respectfully know nor engage in with follow-up questions. She's outstanding!
