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’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.

    Dr. Soma is a wonderful listener and always gives great advice.

    I had been experiencing a lot of troubling symptoms. Dr. Soma took care to document each one, explain what I could do to mitigate them, promptly ordered the appropriate tests, and explained clearly what I needed to monitor (symptom-wise) and what was okay. I felt heard and went away with more confidence in how to handle my health concerns.

    After failing the 1 hour glucose test, it would have been nice if the provider came back into the room to describe next steps, rather than the nurse/assistant telling me I failed and simply handing me a paper with instructions for the 3-hour. Some patients take this news seriously and have follow-up questions in cases like these. In addition, if I mentioned having perinatal depression/anxiety at an earlier appointment, normally I would expect the provider to follow up on this issue during subsequent visits. Luckily, my personal situation has improved and I have fewer symptoms, but I was surprised this was not brought up during the visit.

    She was great! Very informative and didn't rush through the appointment. She gave me the opportunity several times to discuss questions or concerns I had, and seemed genuinely interested in helping me. This was my first visit to establish care, and it was a great experience.
