About Me

As an obstetrician and gynecologist, I specialize in the care of women. It is truly an honor to be a part of someone's life and care for her as she celebrates the birth of a new baby, mourns a loss, or moves into menopause. I have an amazing job.

I believe in getting to know my patients. Through knowing my patients better, I can provide them with personalized, evidence-based, high-quality care.

Having completed my residency at Ohio State, left for fellowship and then returned to practice here, I know just how special this place is. I feel fortunate to work here and to be able to care for patients at Ohio State. I know my patients have access to the best people and the best that medicine has to offer.

In my free time, I enjoy traveling, and I love to cook for friends. I also enjoy running and training for half marathons — and maybe a marathon one day.

I have only seen Dr. Isley 3 times for my annual GYN check ups after having my longtime OB/GYN doctor retire after going to him for 29 years. I was a HUGE fan of his, but I am very glad I found Dr. Isley as my new GYN care provider.

Dr. Isley took time to chat with me about my health and my life, overall, and she answered all of my questions clearly and thoughtfully. She also helped me plan for my care in the future during this visit, which is so helpful with my busy schedule. I cannot say enough about the excellent care that she provides as my OB/GYN, and I am so thankful to have her as my doctor! I have recommended her to others who have passed on that same recommendation based on their excellent experiences as well.
