About Me

As a family medicine physician, the best part of my job is interacting with my patients and helping them to become the best possible versions of themselves. I believe the cornerstone of great care is an honest, mutually respectful and cooperative relationship between the patient and physician.

I’m passionate about teaching patients to take the lead when it comes to their health. My patients and I work as a team to maintain their best health. There’s no “one size fits all” approach to care.

I manage and treat chronic illnesses including diabetes, high blood pressure, depression, thyroid disease, anxiety and depression. I have an interest in women’s health, adolescent medicine and preventive medicine. I am also a PrEP (preexposure prophylaxis) provider to patients at high risk for contracting HIV.

I love the culture of excellence and learning here at Ohio State. Buckeyes are compassionate, driven and full of team spirit!

In my free time I enjoy traveling, exercising and spending time with my family.

I can't say enough good things about Dr. Christian. She is extremely knowledgeable and she has the ability to explain medical issues in layman's terms. I hadn't seen her in about a year, but she still remembered our last visit which demonstrated that I just wasn't a number. I'm glad that she's my Primary Physician.
