About Me

My practice in obstetrics and gynecology includes collaborating with a diverse group of professionals and roles. As a faculty member, I am an educator who teaches students, residents and other physicians from all over the country.

As an obstetrician and gynecologist, I meet and care for a variety of people. I like to engage my patients and educate them about their care. This helps them to better understand what is going on, including their treatment choices.

I have always joked that the longest I ever had to wait for something is nine months (pregnancy). However, I find myself taking a more holistic approach to my medical practice. I focus on long-term health outcomes because my goal is to have women live to the fullest of their capacity.

Many of the patients at Ohio State are educated and engaged in their own health care. This makes it enjoyable to discuss treatment options with them and make good health care decisions.

After hours, I stay involved and active with my family. We especially enjoy visiting new places.

    Very friendly, efficient, I had to step out to use the restroom when they called my name for blood-work, when I came back they got me right in. I was very grateful.

    Dr. Trout felt very dismissive toward me and my questions. He did not seem to care about my questions nor did he want to give any sort of details regarding their answers. During the exam he didn't say explain anything that he was doing and when I asked questions about it afterward he said that I was tightening my muscles a lot so he couldn't get ans answer for me. He should have explained what he was doing and why and asked me to try and relax so he could sufficiently finish the exam.

    I love seeing Dr. Trout, he's always attentive, answers my questions, and talks with me through any health concerns I have. He's an amazing doctor and I feel like I can talk to him about whatever I need, he'll be open and honest about my care and make recommendations but the ultimate decisions about my care are left for me.
