Values

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

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

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).

Continuing medical education, preparing to initiate research to better understand the gynecologic needs of gender-nonconforming individuals

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

We pride ourselves on our open, inclusive approach to caring for all women, and provide the full range of gynecologic office services as well as gynecologic surgery. We have served an increasing number of trans individuals in recent years, primarily by providing hysterectomies for trans men. Our team can include urologists and plastic surgeons as indicated, especially for trans women. Our patients have appreciated the welcoming atmosphere they have experienced at Virginia Mason Medical Center, where we are committed to serving our entire community.
