About Dr. Dornfeld

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 believe in patient autonomy.  My job is to bring the best evidence to patients and then work with them collaboratively to find the best solution for their needs and values.

Expert Care You Can Trust

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!

Amanda is such a kind, caring and thorough Doctor. I had the pleasure of getting to know her while she lived in Whitianga. She put me at ease when I had concerns about my baby being a first time mum. She is so patient and I felt comfortable to ask her questions. Was sad to see her leave Whitianga but I know she will make a great impact for people and their health wherever she goes.

We have had the pleasure of having Dr. Mandy as our family physician since 2006 with the delivery of our second child. It was clear to see even at that first meeting she puts her patients' needs ahead of all else.

I was a patient of Dr. Dornfeld before her big adventure. She is so caring and kind. I never felt rushed or bothered. She has hugged me when I was in pain whether physically or emotionally. I never felt judged for crying in pain or in distress.  I’m just so happy she is coming back and opening a family friendly practice.
