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 have never had a doctor spend so much time with me. she was very kind, knowledgeable, and I felt like she genuinely cared about my health. this was my first visit with her and she came in and did a pre exam interview with me while I was still dressed. she spent about 15 minutes asking me questions about my health and also gave me family planning advice. then she came back in for my exam. she made me feel very comfortable.

I drive an hour just to see Dr Strafford, she has been my doctor for around 7-8 years and I just feel so comfortable with her, I feel like she truly cares about my health, she always explains all of my treatment options and has never tried to steer me towards something i wasn't comfortable with.
