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.
