    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 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.

    Dr. Fallin-Bennett is a top PCP. I want no one else as my primary physician. She is well aware of my needs and how to treat them. I respect and trust her judgment in all areas of my health care. The techs who prepare me for her are professional and friendly. I absolutely love the convenience of UK Turfland Clinic and handicap parking.

    I am very happy with the care I receive from Dr Bennett. I was very happy to have access to the urgent care component of the clinic when I needed thieve services recently. I am really pleased to see such patient centered services now available to me at UK HealthCare family medicine.

    I had on my list getting a flu shot and asking about shingles vaccine. Before the doctor arrived the nurse asked me if I was interested in both vaccines. when I said yes, she gave me the vaccines before Dr Bennett arrived. perfect timing, and 2 less things to talk about.
