LGBT2QIA+ inclusive care is a large part of my personal practice. As a teaching physician with faculty appointments at both Western MIchigan University School of Medicine and Indiana University School of Medicine, I am dedicated to teaching the next generation of doctors that LGBT2QIA+ care is paramount to being an overall good physician.
I have a diverse array of experiences with LGBT2QIA+ patients, both in patient care and advocacy. I was a founding member of Southwest Indiana’s Psychiatry Gender Affirming Care Clinic in Vincennes, IN. During my residency training, I was a supervising physician for the student-run free clinic specializing in gender affirming care for uninsured trans and gender non conforming patients.
I currently offer pediatric puberty blockers, gender affirming hormone therapy, WPATH letters for gender affirming surgeries, PEP, and PrEP all in addition to my full service primary care practice. I am double board certified in both Internal Medicine and Pediatrics and practice the informed consent model to start on hormone therapy.
