LGBTQIA+ care is a personalized approach to healthcare which aims to eliminate specific barriers and address known health disparities among members of the LGBTQIA+ community. Enhancing efforts to improve LGBTQIA+ healthcare are necessary to ensure that LGBTQIA+ individuals can lead long, healthy lives. No matter how you identify, it is important for anyone with chest tissue, a vulva, uterus, cervix, ovaries, or vagina to have regular gynecological exams and screening.
An LGBTQIA+ physician ally is a healthcare provider who is supportive of inclusive care and actively advocates for LQBTQIA+ patients. They often have increased experience or training in caring for the LGBTQIA+ community.
Dr. Worley and Dr. Silva are compassionate physicians who are proud partners of 26Health and are affiliated with the Gay and Lesbian Medical Association (GLMA). They follow the motto “Straight4Equality”.
