Our Providers

Heidi Arbona, M.D.

Dr. Arbona grew up in Bucyrus, Ohio. She studied zoology at Miami University and medicine at the University of Cincinnati. Her initial goal was to become a veterinarian, but that all changed once she spent time in a hospital and saw her first baby being born. She enrolled in the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine and then completed her OB/Gyn residency at St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana. After working in Indianapolis for a few years, she and her husband moved back to Columbus, Ohio to be surrounded by their families. Heidi has three children who make her smile and laugh (most of the time). She has fun playing tennis, running, and waterskiing. She enjoys all facets of OB/Gyn and values working with and serving the women of her local community.

She received her Biochemistry degree, as well as a minor in Fine Art from University of California, San Diego. She attended The Ohio State University for medical school and became a die-hard Buckeye fan. She then fell in love with obstetrics and gynecology and completed her residency in OB/Gyn at St. Vincent Hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana. She is married to Tony, a Sports Medicine doctor, and they enjoy being closer to their families in Ohio. Tammy has a special interest in laparoscopic hysterecomy, adolescent health, and incontinence surgery. In her free time, she enjoys running, painting, snowboarding/skiing, and cooking like the Iron Chef.
