About Me

What’s rewarding about being a gastroenterologist is the ability to treat (or prevent) digestive disorders that can impact a person’s well-being. It’s important for me to bring individualized medical care to my patients. I do this by paying close attention to their needs and personal goals.

What I enjoy most about The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is working with top-notch experts in every field. We all work together to provide the most comprehensive care for patients.

In my spare time, I like to relax with my family, read and spend time outdoors.

Dr. Pfeil is the best GI doctor in town & the reason I've moved all my doctors to the OSU network. She has helped me through countless GI issues over the last 20 years. I've never had a physician care so much & remember all the intimate details of my health & family medical history. She is always prepared for our appointments and is conscious of my time.

Dr. Sheryl Pfeil. Dr. Pfeil is the best doctor I have ever encountered. She has given me outstanding care for 28 years! OSU should consider itself lucky to have her on staff. She listens carefully and takes appropriate next steps. She is an excellent diagnostician. She has "caught" diseases in me "early" that would have cost a fortune had they progressed. She works TIRELESSLY! Likely 80 hours each week for almost 30 years!
