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 great! She always asks about my family & mentions them by name. She is respectful, kind, & efficient. Clinic is well run.

    Dr. Soma listened well without judgment & gave clear & practical advice for my care.

    Dr soma did not treat me like an adult in charge of my own body. She seemed very concerned about my ability to prevent pregnancy when I told her I wanted my IUD out despite me telling her that I had discussed this at length with my partner. It felt like her end goal was to give me birth control, which I did not want after being on it for many years. She does not have very good bedside manner. I left the appointment wishing I had an advocate beside me to push back/dig deeper on some of the things she was saying. I didn't feel comfortable doing that myself in the moment

    Dr. Soma has my health and best interest in mind. She throughly explains the procedure and asks if I have questions and explains them in a way that I understand.

    Great provider but wants to refer questions or consults to primary care provider.

Consulting and Related Relationships

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.
