Personal Statement

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 fluid 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.

      Really enjoyed Dr Fallin-Bennett. I could tell she really cared about what I had to say and what type of care I was looking for. She was very thorough and never made me feel like I was taking up too much of her time despite being in the exam room for close to an hour.
