Personal Statment

As a young person questioning my own sexuality, I came to avoid a healthcare system that seemed impersonal and fragmented and that could possibly reject me. I was hopeful that medical school would reveal a better face of medical care, and thankfully I discovered family medicine. In our specialty, we care for the whole person in the setting of their family and community. We practice personalized medicine, which is where we look at the best evidence and then talk to you about how it fits in with your priorities and values. We also value being a part of our communities and working to make them places that give healthy opportunities to all people.

Through the family medicine approach, I hope to provide a place where people of all identities, including transgender, gender non-conforming and queer-spectrum people, can find a healthcare home that values them as whole people. I advocate for nutrition, physical activity and prevention methods such as vaccines and cancer screenings, but I also realize that we need our whole community and healthcare system to support us in these ways. You are the driver of your own health, and I am here to be a team member, advisor and advocate.

    Have had this provider over 14 yrs. Now there isn't time to discuss all issues since last visit, get questions answered, or discuss options on anything & I mean possible heart attack recently & symptoms of MS. I don't feel those should be taken lightly or brushed off because there isn't enough time to discuss!

      I am very happy with the care I receive from Dr. Fallin-Bennett. Besides doing the normal tests for a wellness check, she listens to my concerns and offers her expertise. If she isn't sure about a situation she researches the issue and gets back to me. I feel lucky to have her as my primary care doctor.
