“Prevention and early intervention in medical disorders is very important to me to keep my patients well. I also believe that truly listening to what patients are saying is therapeutic in its own right.”


Dr. McFarland attended the University of Virginia (UVA) in Charlottesville where she obtained both her undergraduate and medical degrees. A board-certified internal medicine physician practicing for 26 years, Dr. McFarland specializes in treating diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, and thyroid disorders. As a physician who takes prevention very seriously, she also works closely with her patients struggling with weight loss which she finds is a key factor in the medical management of chronic conditions.
