About Pelin Batur, MD

Pelin Batur MD has been at the Cleveland Clinic since 1998; she works in the department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Subspecialized Women's Health.  Dr Batur graduated medical school from Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine (NEOMED), where she completed the accelerated, 6-year BS/MD track. After her internal medicine residency training, she also completed specialty fellowship training in women’s health at the Cleveland Clinic. The fellowship provided expertise in menopause, breast care, osteoporosis, contraception, hormonal headaches, medical genetics, general gynecology, urology, preventative cardiology and endocrinology.  Her specialty interests include menopausal care, contraception, bone health, menstrual migraine, sexual concerns, as well as overall preventative women’s health. She has partnered with the Taussig Cancer Institute to develop a comprehensive Female Sexual Function program for cancer survivors. 

She is actively involved in the education of medical trainees and staff physicians, and has held several educational leadership positions throughout her career.

She lectures nationally to general medicine, endocrinology and gynecology specialists, and works closely with multiple national medical organizations to advance women’s health care and education. She is the Deputy Editor of the Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine, a medical journal that is distributed to over 100,000 internists, cardiologists and endocrinologists across the US and internationally. After 15 years of balancing a primary care and consultative women’s health practice, she has transitioned to a purely women’s health practice in efforts to be more accessible to those in need of specialized women’s health services. She splits her time between Cleveland Clinic Main Campus and the Strongsville Family Health and Surgery Center.

I would definitely recommend Dr. Batur to others. She was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. She was also very attentive to my needs and listened to me, and allow me time to ask any questions I had, without feeling rushed. I immediately followed one of her recommendations and it was extremely successful! I'm very pleased to have met with her, and look forward to working with her in the future, if necessary.

Dr Batur was amazing! She listened attentively, asked lots of questions, and made me feel comfortable talking about very sensitive subjects so that we could develop a treatment plan that will hopefully resolve issues and pain that I've been dealing with for 2+ years. Not once did I feel rushed by Dr Batur even though my appointment was the last one of the day. I have already recommended her to 2 friends who are having some similar symptoms

Dr. Batur was really wonderful! We had a fantastic discussion and I did not feel rushed at all. I felt that she listened to what I had to say and gave me some very good options, as well as the tools to consider those options well. I could tell that she must be a very good professor, she has a fantastic open-mindedness and calm authority. She was friendly without being unprofessional. And I should mention that we both were wearing face masks through the entire interaction, which can sometimes make it hard to read cues when discussing such sensitive topics. I was incredibly impressed by my experience that day!

My virtual appointment was an hour behind. It was difficult to contact the correct person to find out if the Doctor would indeed call me that day. Better communication between doctor and her staff. When you know you are running late, contact staff to text patient to give a heads up that you will be contacted. However, after speaking with the Doctor I was very pleased with how professional, smart and personable she was. Looking forward to my visit and appreciate the excellent healthcare I will receive.
