About Me

As an endocrinologist at Ohio State, I specialize in type 1 diabetes. I help my patients monitor and manage their daily glucose trends, as well as try to help them learn the best ways to manage their condition.

My plan is to develop a program where people with type 1 diabetes feel they have a clinic that cares about them as a person. I want to help my patients adapt their regimen to their changing lifestyle. In addition to developing the clinic dedicated to type 1 diabetes, we will create community-based activities and programs. Our goal is to have networking opportunities throughout the Columbus area for people with type 1 diabetes and their families.

I believe in personalizing my care approach to help patients adapt to life with diabetes, rather than only focusing on long-term glucose levels (A1C values), prescriptions and a quick discharge. I think it's important to help people understand the reality of living with type 1 diabetes.

Although I’m new to Ohio State, I'm enjoying the experience so far, especially working with all of my colleagues. I also work with diabetic students on campus, through Ohio State's active chapter of the College Diabetes Network.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling and attending Ohio State football games and I am also a huge soccer fan.

all good

Dr. Wyne is a smart practitioner who has given good suggestions on how to manage my diabetes. My last session was particularly emotional for me because I was disappointed with my A1C results. Dr. Wyne showed patience in helping me understand my A1C results in the context of how I had been adapting to using a continuous glucose monitor. More importantly, she challenged me to work towards a goal of achieving tighter glucose control within a narrower range than what I set for myself on my continuous glucose meter. I prefer that approach to taking care of my needs. Finally, she set me up to see my diabetes educator to work on these goals.

Dr Wyne is an excellent physician. Her visits may last longer than the standard 15' time slot allotted but she is always ready to answer any questions that I have, as well as when she is teaching a fellow or new hire, I get the benefit of her teaching as well. She's an advocate for patients to be involved in their own disease process - quite a switch up from the paternalistic views of my past providers. It's challenging but also rewarding.
