About Me

As a member of The Ohio State University Department of Family Medicine, I am able to focus on patient care, teaching and research. My clinical interests revolve around achieving wellness in our community.

I practice obstetrics and have a special interest in women’s health issues, including the procedures involved in keeping my female patients healthy. I am passionate about training new physicians and helping them prepare to become future leaders of the community.

Because I have developed relationships with my patients over several years, I am able to understand what is important to them when making healthcare decisions.

I enjoy the variety of educational opportunities available here at Ohio State, including teaching medical students, residents and mentoring new graduates. My research interests focus on quality and patient safety. In addition to advanced training in medical acupuncture, I also am board certified in hospice and palliative medicine. I feel privileged to care for my patients and their families through the experiences and challenges of life.

In my free time I enjoy traveling, relaxing with my family, bicycling and participating in Pelotonia.

She helped me to understand an issue that I would soon be addressing to another doctor, she suggested the best way to prevent the issue by my emailing my concerns to the other doctor so that the other doctor could think about her answer to me prior to the visit.

Dr. Rundall treats me like an intelligent human being. She listens to me, and doesn't dismiss my concerns, my option, or my questions. It is nice to have a dr. who listens to me. In todays times, we unfortunately have a lot of other physicians who don't listen I like how she listens. And she cares about her patients. She also takes an effort to remember her patients by reading the charts before she comes in to see you. It gives you a better connection to her as a physician and care provider. It also makes me more willing to trust her. Someone who cares enough to read my chart is a BETTER physician by far.
