About Me

I am a dermatologist at Ohio State and I’m board certified in both dermatology and gynecology. I specialize in treating dermatologic disease in pregnancy, vulvar diseases and dermatologic surgery. I decided to pursue dermatology because I found in my general OB/GYN practice that many women were undertreated for skin disease in pregnancy. I also realized that women were inadequately treated for disabling vulvar diseases that had a negative impact on their lives.

In regard to patient care, I believe in developing collaborative relationships with patients where we work together as a team to create a treatment plan.

Working at Ohio State means I have the opportunity to collaborate with physicians in other specialties who have unique clinical and research interests. I also love teaching future physicians and dermatologists.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband, son and dog. I also enjoy personal training, traveling, playing the violin and playing the piano.

    Love Dr. Tyler. She is so personable! I feel she is very knowledgeable and she gives you time to think things through that involve surgery. She doesn't make you feel rushed and she actually looks at you when she speaks instead of looking at a laptop.

Consulting and Related Relationships

At The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, we support a faculty member’s research and consulting in collaboration with medical device, research and/or drug companies because a faculty member’s expertise can guide important advancements in the practice of medicine and improve patient care. In order to provide effective management of these relationships, the University requires annual disclosures from all faculty members with external interests related to their University responsibilities.

As of 09/29/2023, Dr. Tyler has reported no relationships with companies or entities.
