Question: What brought you to Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center?

Answer: I'm originally from Stuart, Virginia, a small town that's about 45 minutes north of Winston. My husband and I met while in school at the Medical College of Virginia in Richmond, and we decided to look around both of our hometowns when we were choosing where to do our residencies. We fell in love with the area and, more importantly, the people here at Wake Forest Baptist.

Q: What are your clinical specialties?

A: My specialties are procedural medicine, family medicine, adolescent medicine, newborn medicine, women's health, adult and child care, and pediatrics.  

Q: What do you enjoy most about working with patients?

A: I love seeing the same patients, especially families, over time. I enjoy getting to know them and being a part of their health care.

Q: What fun facts should we know about you?

A: I garden and have an impressive vegetable and spice garden this year! I also make jewelry, run and bike. However, most of my time away from work is spent with my wonderful husband, Andrew, and our new baby boy, Matthew.

Dr. Farland is by far the best doctor I have in 79+ years!

10/4/2015

She spent the time needed with us...always, but sometimes if we needed more time we felt bad about the hectic scheduling. 15 minute time intervals is just too little time to go through all that is needed. I am not sure where that comes from and i know it is a business, but this is also health care. It is a double edged sword.

10/1/2015

When my previous primary care physician left NC and I had to choose a new one, I chose Dr Farland because of her combined experience in nursing and as a physician. I could not be more delighted. Dr Farland is the best!! She is the example of what any primary care physician should strive to be.

6/9/2015

A lot of time is spent entering information or looking up information on the computer - the focus seems to be to make sure the medical records are complete. Of course this is important, but shouldn't be the primary activity during the appointment.

6/9/2015

Dr. Farland is my favorite doctor of any health care provider I have ever visited. She is kind and personable. I really appreciate how upbeat she is. I have always felt like she genuinely cared about my health. I recently made some lifestyle changes to improve my health. While there were other factors in my decision to make changes, the manner in which she spoke to me about my poor health choices were the final catalyst I needed to make changes. She expressed to me the seriousness of the path I was on, but also gave me encouragement that I could make the necessary changes.
