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.

    Dr. Kornder is a compassionate doctor. She seems to truly care about my health. And she is willing to take the time to listen. She is also incredibly fast with her MyChart responses. I appreciate that she is my PCP.

    Dr. Kornder was very patient and very prepared. This was a first time visit but she had studied my former dr.'s notes and was aware of my history, answered my questions and exhibited a charming sense of humor.
