  • Physician What's this? A physician, or doctor, is extensively trained to diagnose and treat complex medical problems. Often, physicians focus their practice on certain disease categories, treatment methods or patient types. Physicians can diagnose and treat illness, prescribe medication, offer medical consultation and advice, perform surgery and more.

About Me

As an obstetrician and gynecologist, my goal is to empower women as they make decisions about their reproductive health and well-being. I specialize in abnormal uterine bleeding, contraceptive care, early pregnancy management, family planning, preventative care and transgender health. I am passionate about partnering with my patients in order to create healthcare plans that are both evidence-based and suited to their unique needs and values.

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, I am always confident that my patients receive top-quality care.

In my free time, I enjoy reading and gardening, especially growing tomatoes.

Dr. Rivlin is absolutely wonderful. We had a great conversation regarding my health and any changes over the last year before she started the exam. She actually listens and doesn't seem rushed to move along with exam and on to the next patient. I trust her judgment completely because I know she is being thorough.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr Rivlin. She immediately put me at ease and talked about my concerns in a way that I could understand without being patronizing which can be a hard line to walk. She was open to my questions and concerns and treated me as if i was someone she cared about not just another stop in a busy day.
