How We’re Celebrating The Holidays: From Your Local LGBTQ+ Healthcare ProvidersDecember 1, 2021
No matter what time of the year it is, you want to have providers who understand you as an individual. That’s why Harmony Healthcare has the LGBTQ-friendly doctors in Orlando that you need.
If you have ever had a difficult time finding the right medical provider – someone who you could talk to, who took you seriously, and who spent time getting to know you in a judgment-free environment – then you are not alone. In fact, a recent KFF survey found that over one-third of LGBTQ+ Americans report that they have had a negative experience with a medical provider in the last two years.
Of the nearly 5,000 adults surveyed:
- 13% of LGBTQ respondents reported their medical provider suggested they were to blame for their medical problems.
- 16% reported their doctor didn’t believe they were telling the truth.
- 29% reported that their medical provider dismissed their concerns.
Statistics like this are the reason that we need LGBTQ-friendly doctors in Orlando and everywhere else too.
How We’re Different
At Harmony Healthcare, creating an open and accepting environment isn’t just an afterthought. It’s the reason we’re here. It’s clear that there’s a need for medical providers who know exactly what the members of our LGBTQ+ community are experiencing, and our providers strive to offer a unique perspective and healthcare experience that is tailored to each patient.
Our office provides medical care to our patients regardless of their insurance status or ability to pay. Our services include:
- Hepatitis C medical care
- HIV medical care
- STI testing and treatment
- And more
Wellness That Goes Beyond Medical Treatment
Your needs go beyond medical care, and our providers understand that. The COVID-19 pandemic has seriously affected our LGBTQ+ community. With over 40% of employed LGBTQ+ individuals working in K-12 and higher education, restaurants and food service, hospitals, or retail, the impact that COVID-19 had on these industries has been passed down to LGBTQ+ employees.
These negative economic consequences have increased the need for housing, reliable transportation, food assistance, and other basic necessities.
This is why Harmony Healthcare provides non-medical case management to help connect our patients to the community resources that can help them the most. We can provide referrals for mental health counseling, help finding food assistance, public assistance, employment opportunities, and more.
Our office has solutions that meet you where you are. If transportation has been a barrier to your access to healthcare, we offer transportation services to get you to your appointments. We also have a new mobile medical unit that allows us to bring our services to even more people in our community.
