Over the span of her career, Dr. Larkin has spent more than 15 years in both academics and private practice which affords her a unique perspective about healthcare delivery and opportunities to raise the standard of care. She spent the first ten years of her career as academic faculty in the Internal Medicine Department at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, where she cultivated her niche in midlife women’s health. In 2002, Dr. Larkin left UC and opened her own internal medicine and women’s health practice which, over 10 years, she grew into a multispecialty women’s health practice employing six other physicians, including four primary care providers and two gynecologists. In 2012, Dr. Larkin sold her practice and returned to UC faculty in the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, specifically to design, build and serve as Director of the UC Health Women’s Center, the region’s first comprehensive, primary care-based medical home for women. In May 2013, Dr. Larkin successfully opened the UC Health Women’s Center, a 26,000-sq. ft. center, where she served as Director until June 2016.
Dr. Larkin resigned her position and returned to private practice in 2016 with renewed enthusiasm and commitment to providing outstanding personalized primary care and women’s healthcare to her patients and to advancing women’s healthcare in areas of unmet medical need. With this vision, she reopened her primary care and women’s health practice as a direct primary care (DPC) practice, offering patients affordable, accessible personalized medicine.
A breast cancer survivor herself, Dr. Larkin’s passion is women’s health, particularly menopause management, female sexual health, cancer survivorship, breast cancer risk assessment and prevention, and women and cardiovascular disease..
A devoted clinician educator, Dr. Larkin is well-published and lectures frequently at physician CME programs and educational events on women’s health topics. Named one of Cincinnati’s “Top Docs” every year since 1991 (by Cincinnati Magazine), she is recognized by her peers, patients, members of the community, and the media as an exceptional provider, advocate, educator and innovator.
Known as an entrepreneur and health care “disrupter,” Dr. Larkin is the Founder and CEO of two women’s health-focused business initiatives designed to improve the care of women. In addition to Ms. Medicine, LLC, she founded MyBreastRiskIQ, LLC, a digital women’s health start-up whose mission is to educate and inform women about their individual breast cancer risk and breast cancer prevention strategies.
Dr. Larkin is passionate about her friends and family. She enjoys time with her husband, Dr. Arthur Pancioli, and their blended family of 6 children. Together, they enjoy active travel, including mountain climbing, hiking, tennis and skiing.
