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 health care 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 health care providers.

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

    I felt her physical exam of me was not very thorough. Breast exam was super fast and I felt like her pelvic exam was quick as well. I'm very healthy, but it felt rushed and not thorough.

    Could use better language about weight concerns - "Not the worst BMI I've seen"

    Dr. Strafford is an amazing doctor and is great at listening and understanding & explaining procedures & processes.

  • Reviewed on Feb 26, 2021

    She was condescending, did not listen to my concerns & did not want to examine me. Had to Google whether I could take med. prescribed w/my other meds. Made me feel unimportant.
