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.

warm and friendly atmosphere. this was a first visit. I moved here from Raleigh. Dr Farland seemed excited to get me as a patient. I think we are going to have a great relationship. my phone had died so I didn't have a gps. the receptionist printed the directions so I could get home. I feel so lucky to have found wake forest baptist primary care and all of your physicians. thank you

(My dr. is new to me and I really like her, she is really good.)

5/24/2016

Dr. Farland is a fantastic doctor. She is personable, and listens really well, and seems to show genuine concern for my well-being. She engages in conversations to help me figure out what I need, and has offered many helpful suggestions. I feel comfortable with her and feel like I can speak openly and honestly about things, even when I find such things uncomfortable or embarrassing.

5/17/2016

Dr. Farland is an excellent physician and an asset to the Wake Forest Baptist community. I am glad that I found her as my primary care doctor, as I feel very comfortable with her. She is always very approachable, and I always feel that she takes my concerns seriously. She always takes time to answer questions, and she is very knowledgeable. She is very accessible via MyWakeHealth as well. There aren't enough good things that I can say about Dr. Farland; I recommend her to anyone looking for a PCP.

5/4/2016

I've seen Dr. Farland since I was young and she'll be the only doctor I see while I'm living here. If there was ever anything to complain about it would be that I didn't get to stay and chat with her longer, but that's an unrealistic concern because its a busy practice that always has patients.

4/26/2016

I have recommended Dr. Farland to others.

I sent Dr Farland an email letting her know that she had been right on the mark with her diagnosis and updating my condition: I was much improved, as she had predicted. I did not expect to receive an answer but....I received an email from Dr Farland telling me she was happy I was feeling better. My husband and I just moved our health care from another provider to WFU Baptist Health. We could not be happier with the care we are receiving....as elderly folks it is VERY comforting to know we are receiving great care from people who truly care about us.

1/28/2016

My opinion *Dr. Farland is an excellent highly educated Dr. who really cares about her patience.

10/10/2015

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.
