  • Physician What's this? A physician, or doctor, is extensively trained to diagnose and treat complex medical problems. Often, physicians focus their practice on certain disease categories, treatment methods or patient types. Physicians can diagnose and treat illness, prescribe medication, offer medical consultation and advice, perform surgery and more.

About Me

I am a primary care sports medicine doctor, which means I specialize in treating non-surgical musculoskeletal issues for patients of all ages. This can include acute sports injuries, overuse sports injuries and chronic musculoskeletal conditions. My goal when providing care is to work with patients to create personalized treatment plans that incorporate their individual goals and medical needs. Additionally, I enjoy working with my patients to keep them as active, healthy and happy as possible throughout their lifetime. 

Within family medicine, preventative care is an important area for me. I want to make sure my patients understand healthy behaviors and screenings that can prevent future illness. Medical issues are often avoidable so I work with my patients to manage chronic care issues.
 
I enjoy The Ohio State University's team-based approach, where I work closely with providers in my specialty and with providers in other specialties such as primary care, orthopedics and physical medicine. This approach encourages good communication and allows us to provide the best coordinated care for our patients. I enjoy the familiarity of the smaller clinics while still having access to the benefits of the larger institution.

In my free time, I enjoy running on the Columbus city bike trails. If I'm not running, you'll likely still find me outdoors, usually working in my yard. I moved from Wisconsin to Columbus because of the great opportunities to train here in family medicine and sports medicine. Since moving here, I've come to love the personality of this city and its people. I've been excited to stay here after finishing my training and continuing to work at The Ohio State University.

the doctor was really nice and took my concerns seriously. She explained what was wrong with my shoulders and what might help.

Attentive listener, asked specific questions or follow ups to what I was describing that enabled her to know more.

A great deal of the visit time was spent with the doctor. She was very thorough, explained what she recommended to treat me, and while giving me a steroid shot, explained to me what she was doing and prepping which helped calm me down. She gave me apple juice when I felt lightheaded.

Dr. Kornder was excellent. She carefully assessed my shoulder problem and used a plastic model to help explain it to me and what I would need to do to fix it.

Reviewed on Feb 25, 2019

The doctor seemed knowledgeable, and I had some confidence what she prescribed was correct. She took appropriate time with me. Her manner was very cold. I would not want her as a regular care provider.
