Healthcare for Every Person & Identity: LGBTQ+ Health & Wellness

In a survey of LGBTQ+ people, more than half of all respondents reported they have faced cases of providers denying care, using harsh language, or blaming the patient’s sexual orientation or gender identity as the cause for an illness.

Although LGBTQ+ bodies can look and exist in so many different ways, one thing many in LGBTQ+ communities have in common is a lack of access to high-quality healthcare. Sometimes concerns over whether a provider will simply listen and support you is a big barrier to getting regular care. Unfortunately, many times LGBTQ+ patients experience direct discrimination. At Carbon Health, we stand for healthcare for all, and that includes providing a safe place where the LGTBQ+ community can feel seen and heard. Having a provider who knows you and your body and can help support you is a game-changer when it comes to your overall health and well-being.

Our team of providers is here for you and all your healthcare needs. Whatever you may be going through, they are here to listen and guide you in a safe and supportive setting. Book an appointment today and one of our primary care providers will be there to help support and guide you every step of the way.
