Dr. Farmer Sr's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Farmer Sr "Born in Winchester, KY and attended George Rogers Clark High School (Clark County). Graduated in 1968. Graduated from Georgetown College with a B.S. and went on to attend University of Louisville School of Medicine where I graduated in 1976. I did a 4 year residency program in OB-GYN from 1976-1980 under Dr. John Queenan, MD. I've practiced in east Louisville since 1980 primarily at Norton Suburban Hospital (where I had the privilege of delivering the first babies in 1988 (set of twins)) as well as Baptist East Hospital. I am a member of the American College of OB-GYN (ACOG) and became Board certified in 1982. I also am a member of the AMA as well as the KMA. I also received a Master of Science Degree in 1976 in the field of Physiology and Biophysics. My research was in "membrane transport" and still enjoy being involved in research. I have sat on the "Board of Trustees of Georgetown College" as well as the "Georgetown College Foundation Board". Many of the babies I have delivered have gone on to attend Georgetown College. I also received my private pilot's license in 1978 and have thoroughly enjoyed the aviation field over the years. I currently practice only Gynecology with an emphasis on hormone replacement therapy with bio-identical and/or "human identical" replacement therapy. I continue to perform gynecological surgical procedures such as sterilization procedures, endometrial ablations for excessive vaginal bleeding, laparoscopic hysterectomies as well as laparoscopic procedures to diagnose the etiology of pelvic pain. I have also begun a "suboxone clinic" in the treatment of opioid addiction. My practice is involved in "pharmacogenetic testing" and incorporating these findings in the better care of patients. I am licensed to practice in five (5) states including Florida, Georgia, Ohio, Indiana, as well as Kentucky. "
