Mandy is a life-long Indiana resident. After completing medical school at Stritch School of Medicine of Loyola Chicago, Dr. Dornfeld, moved to Muncie, Indiana to complete residency training.
She and her family chose to settle in Columbus immediately after her residency training where she practiced full-spectrum family medicine for 13 years, caring for patients in the hospital, in the office, and delivering babies. In 2020 she and her family moved to Whitianga, New Zealand for an ex-pat experience where she worked as a (very rural) GP doctor.
Dr. Dornfeld and her husband, David, have been married for 22 years. They have three kids who all attend BCSC schools.
Dr. Dornfeld has a passion for high-quality care for patients and their families. She is just as happy caring for newborns as she is elderly patients with complex medical and social needs. Mandy has a thriving breastfeeding medicine practice and is a board certified lactation consultant.
Since living in New Zealand, she has a new love for hiking (called tramping in New Zealand), enjoys travel and spending time with family.
I was fortunate to attend Stritch School of Medicine at Loyola University of Chicago for medical school. The holistic medical education was a great foundation for my career in family medicine. I chose a family medicine residency where I could get broad training in pediatrics, obstetrics and care of adults in Muncie, Indiana at Ball Memorial Hospital.
I just recertified for my 10th year as a board certified lactation consultant (IBCLC). I remain a board certified family physician through the American Board of Family Medicine.
I do love caring for moms and babies but continue to enjoy my older population as well. During my time in New Zealand, more than 70% of my patients were over age 65!
Megan is a native of Columbus, Indiana.
After graduating from nursing school, Megan began work at a pediatric practice in Columbus where she worked for 21 years. While there she cared for patients from birth to college and enjoyed getting to know her patients and their families on a personal level. She left pediatrics to work in care-coordination for the elderly before joining Dr. Dornfeld at Sage Direct Care in October of 2021.
Megan and her husband Zach have been married for 24 years. They have a young adult son and a teenage daughter.
Megan is committed to providing exceptional care for each patient she comes into contact with. She is known for being dedicated to solving problems for her patients, be they medical or logistical in nature. She has loved getting to know the patients of Sage Direct Care. Megan has been a great asset to our practice alongside Dr. Dornfeld in providing high-quality care through the Direct Primary Care model.
Outside of work you are likely to find Megan at Target, at a soccer game, enjoying the view from her back porch, or running errands for her family’s farm.
