EG Healthcare is proud to offer LGBTQ affirming healthcare. We are a safe medical space for the LGBTQ community. We are aware that the LGBTQ community has specific healthcare needs and we are here to meet those needs.
LGBTQ healthcare begins with the front desk who have all been educated and trained to be aware of how to best serve the community. The language of all our medical forms and health records have all been updated to be more inclusive of different sexual preferences, gender pronouns, and identities. Our clinical staff has all been trained to offer the latest evidence-based practices to serve the LGBTQ patient and LGBTQ health issues, including pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and STD screening.
The LGBTQ community has been considered a medically underserved community for ages. Many in the community have had negative experiences in the healthcare setting. Our community deserves better. At EG Healthcare, our team of LGBTQ affirming healthcare providers understand the unique healthcare requirements of the LGBTQ patient. We are aware that our patients have medical and mental health concerns that need to be discussed and addressed.
We work closely with the Pride Center of Staten Island and sponsor many events that help the LGBTQ population of Staten Island. In addition, we have recently teamed up with Healthy Transitions to provide additional medical services for transgender / genderqueer / gender expansive individuals. They offer consultations and help with Hormone Replacement Therapy. They can also guide the patient through the processes needed for gender reassignment surgery.
We look forward to meeting the health care needs for you and your family.
Contact us to schedule an appointment. Most forms of insurance are accepted and, if you do not have insurance, our services are affordable. Our goal is to make sure you get the medical attention and services that you need.
