Values

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

Our office has rotating artwork from local LGBQ artists, magazines directed at our population, rainbow stickers, staff is reflective of the community, community organizations are allowed to promote events in the clinic.

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

We ask preferred name for charting, we ask preferred pronouns, we provide gender neutral bathrooms, we train our staff in LGBQ sensitivity.

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 moved to Seattle in 2000 to be Gay City Health Project's Queercore youth coordinator. Since that time, I've been very active in the community as a bartender at R-Place, player and president of the Seattle Quake Rugby Club (a queer rugby club), a keynote speaker for the Pride Foundation brunch, and I've participated in many conferences and community events.

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

We are a small private practice. This means a more intimate and focused setting. We are more of a practice you would find in a small town, but with an urban edge. We have provided trans care for over 20 years. Our clinic accepts most private insurance plans, and accepted Medicaid plans are listed above.
