Values

What does your clinic do to make the space welcoming and inclusive for LGBQ-identified patients?

We all wear name tags with our name and preferred pronoun. All of our patient paperwork allows patients to tell us the name they use and the pronoun they use. We are a Safe Space through the SPD.

What does your clinic do to make the space welcoming and inclusive for trans- and genderqueer-identified patients?

See above.

Please describe the ways in which you are involved in LGBTQ community outside of your practice (ex: Do you attend conferences on working with LGBTQ clients? Are you involved in local organizations that serve these communities? etc).

What else do you want potential patients to know about you or your clinic?

I accept PIP (Personal Injury Protection) in the aftermath of a motor vehicle collision.
