In each edition of One Health, we will introduce you to some of the physicians who provide care at KentuckyOne Health. In this issue, meet two of the many KentuckyOne Health primary care providers.

Meet Dr. Alvarado

Ralph Alvarado, MD, FACP, primary care physician with KentuckyOne Health Primary Care Associates in Winchester, attended Loma Linda University School of Medicine in San Bernardino, California. Dr. Alvarado then completed the University of Kentucky’s combined residency in pediatrics and internal medicine, so he and his family have called Kentucky home for many years.

As a primary care physician, Dr. Alvarado works with patients to ensure they receive the preventive services they need.

“I have always felt KentuckyOne Health was an organization I could trust,” Dr. Alvarado said. “It has impressed me that even at a high level, the system’s goals always come back to the mission of providing more care for patients within the Commonwealth and reaching out to those who are underserved.”

To make an appointment with Dr. Alvarado or another KentuckyOne Health primary care physician in Lexington and Central/Eastern Kentucky, call 888.570.8092

Meet Dr. Waldridge

A native of Kentucky, Ron Waldridge II, MD, family medicine physician with KentuckyOne Health Primary Care Associates in Shelbyville, is a second-generation family physician.

“Because of my father’s love of medicine and the joy I saw him have with his career, I was inspired to pursue the same path,” Dr. Waldridge said. “In medical school, I realized family medicine fit the bill for me best. A lot of it is about relationships with families, and that’s what I enjoy — getting to know people and advising them about their health care needs.”

Dr. Waldridge graduated from the University of Louisville School of Medicine before completing a residency in family medicine at Carolinas Medical Center in Charlotte, North Carolina.

To make an appointment with Dr. Waldridge or another KentuckyOne Health primary care physician in the Louisville area, call 888.570.8091.
