Gender Affirming Healthcare

While the medical healthcare industry has a ways to go, healthcare clinics across the country are recognizing their responsibility to provide quality care to all. With improved data, healthcare professionals can better identify the unmet needs of LGBTQ+ patients and develop more effective solutions.

Many providers lack knowledge and training on the needs and experiences, can be discriminatory, and often have no indication when entering the facility that the provider is gender-affirming. Gender-affirming care is any care in which a member of the LGBTQ+ community has their needs properly met, feels safe, and comfortable, and feels their gender is respected.

Dr. Alex Jimenez (He/Him) understands the importance of a safe and positive space and believes that everyone deserves the same treatment to be available to all.
