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.

Katherine is an excellent care provider. However, given my age & my new location, I'm not sure if I will continue coming to this location.

D. Strafford is awesome and I'm picky. I tried 2 other doctors before I found her that I left for GYN - because they were not helpful.

Loved the separation from the interview & actual exam. Loved that I was able to speak with Dr. Strafford, before hand, while still in my regular clothes.

Dr. Strafford has always been phenomenal. She spent extra time catching up on medical concerns and my family! She knew I was anxious and talked to me and calmed me down throughout the exam.
