About Me

I practice in obstetrics and gynecology, specializing in high-risk pregnancy. This includes an emphasis on diabetes in pregnancy. My focus on maternal fetal medicine involves treating these and other medical complications that can happen during pregnancy.

My goal is to inform my patients about various aspects of their care. I am also an advocate for birth options such as vaginal delivery after cesarean section. I believe in providing patients with comprehensive care while listening and providing answers to questions that may arise.

The people at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center are among the many things I appreciate about working here. I am blessed to work with a team of talented and committed individuals who put patients first.

When I'm not at work, I like to relax with my family, attend Ohio State football games and travel. I run five times per week, but I am getting a bit slower as I grow older!

    Dr. Landon took time to help me understand my situation. He answered all my questions and gave me resources if I needed anything else. He truly cares about his patients.

    He stared at the computer and reiterated information I had already been told. Did not ask good questions or have a productive visit. Was NOT satisfied and would not visit again.

    Impersonal. I'm sure the actual medical guidance is fine but I would not go back when I could go somewhere else for good care and a physician who cares.
