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.

    Dr. Strafford is the best provider I've ever seen. She takes time to speak with me about everything that's going on, and makes sure I understand my situation, and the path forward. She's friendly and helpful. Can't speak highly enough of her and her staff.

    Dr. Strafford is the best doctor I have ever seen. She took time to listen to every single concern and info that I had. She absorbed all my information and gave me the best advice to address my concerns. She is very professional and yet I feel very comfortable to talk to her. Very thankful for her advice.

    Dr. Stafford is amazing! I was lucky to have established care with her almost 15 years ago when I moved to Ohio. She is easy to talk to and listens to my questions/concerns thoughtfully. I never feel like she is rushed. I feel like she is giving me her attention during my appointment time.

    Dr Strafford is absolutely the best Gynecologist at The Ohio State. The Medical community and her patients are so fortunate and blessed to have her!

    I like Dr. Strafford, but she had preconceived notion in her head about next step rather than doing testing/investigating different options/etc.
