About Me

Obstetrics and gynecology is one of the most inspiring and fulfilling specialties. It’s wonderful to get to know the women I care for over time, helping them through pivotal stages in their lives. I believe in providing compassionate, personalized, evidence-based care. I enjoy taking care of women for the general gynecologic care, pregnancy, and have a special interest in polycystic ovarian syndrome.

I’ve been part of the Buckeye community since medical school and have enjoyed every step of my academic journey. Now, I instruct third-year medical students during Ob/Gyn rotations, facilitate small group sessions and participate as a mentor when assigned to students.

A major part of why I stayed at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center throughout my medical training and the start of my career is because of the people. The physicians, specialists, nurses and staff make each patient feel welcome and cared for. It’s also been beneficial to work somewhere with access to the best resources for complex patient cases.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy spending time with my husband and two daughters, reading, cooking and exercise.

    This was the second time that I had this procedure. The first time I had a very very bad reaction. This Dr was very kind compassionate.

    This was my first visit with Dr. Soma. I brought up a long-standing problem, and she listened carefully and did not suggest that it was all in my head or seem eager to get rid of me. I was very grateful. She gave a few recommendations, which I will follow up on.
