About Me

I practice in general obstetrics and gynecology. It’s a privilege to work with so many wonderful women throughout their lives. I appreciate the opportunity to help them meet some of life’s greatest joys and challenges.

It's important to me to engage my patients in their care. Together, we can find healthcare approaches that best meet their individual needs. I enjoy accomplishing this while also maintaining best practices recommended by evidence-based medicine.

Working at Ohio State allows me to have immediate access to the latest updates, including medical practice and research. The best in primary and specialty care co-management is here.

Ohio State also allows us to maintain a connection with the bright, enthusiastic minds that are the next generation of outstanding healthcare providers.

When I'm not on the job, I enjoy relaxing with my family, reading and traveling.

    I like Dr. Strafford, but she seems rushed and slightly annoyed when you ask questions.

    Dr. Strafford is caring and makes the appointment experience as comfortable as possible. She always takes time to answer all of my questions and do so in a way that makes me feel like it is important to stay informed and educated on the best ways to care for my health. She is a remarkable physician and one of the best I have encountered at the OSU Wexner Medical Center.

    Dr. Strafford is very busy, but she never makes our appointment feel rushed.

  • Reviewed on Sep 06, 2019

    She spent a lot of time with me and took me seriously when I conveyed my concerns. however, she seemed quick to jump to (an incorrect) conclusion about what was going on with me, that frustrated me a bit given it was a sensitive issue. however, she did listen to me and order tests to confirm, rather than simply waving me off and assuming she was correct, which I appreciated.

    Dr. Strafford has never made me feel rushed and always makes me feel like she has time for all the questions in the world. She thoroughly explains everything, and went out of her way to get answers to a question she wasn't 100% sure of the answer.
