Values

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

Our forms are LGBQ-inclusive, providers all trained in taking sexual history, staff and providers trained not to make assumptions about gender identity or sexual orientation.

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

Forms are trans-inclusive, we ask and use preferred name and pronoun, we have work-arounds for pronoun and name with our EHR, gender neutral restroom, staff trained.

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).

I attend local and national conferences on LGBTQ health, I am a speaker/lecturer on LGBTQ health /trans-competency, I am involved with Ingersoll Gender Center and Washington Academy of Transhealth.

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

We periodically open to new patients.
