About Me

I'm a dermatologist who specializes in the skin surveillance of patients with a history of melanoma and/or atypical moles. I also see patients with cutaneous lymphoma.

At The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute, I'm the director of the Pigmented Lesions Clinic, where I conduct skin checks in patients with a personal or family history of melanoma and/or a personal history of atypical or dysplastic moles. During these visits, I can take advantage of our on-site full body photography, which has been shown to improve the quality of skin checks by making it easier to identify new or changing moles and reducing the number of unnecessary skin biopsies. At The James, I also see patients with early-stage cutaneous lymphoma and lymphoproliferative disorders.

In addition to conducting research in these arenas, I'm passionate about improving access to dermatologic care for underserved populations and am leading several research and clinical projects with this objective.

Coming to Ohio State felt a bit like coming home, as I was born and raised in Cincinnati. Following college, I worked as a teacher at a residential school for children with autism spectrum disorders for a few years before attending medical school at the University of Pennsylvania, where I also stayed for dermatology residency. While at the University of Pennsylvania, I served as chief resident and also completed a clinical fellowship in cutaneous oncology, splitting my time caring for patients with a history of melanoma and cutaneous lymphoma.

I enjoy spending my spare time with my young daughters and husband, mostly taking meandering walks around our neighborhood, but also occasionally exploring local parks and restaurants. I still consider myself new to Columbus and love hearing any and all local recommendations from my patients!

    Dr. Natalie spoke kindly to my mother. She spoke loud enough & looked directly at my mother's face so she could see & hear her. Very professional.

Consulting and Related Relationships
