LGBTQ+ Care: High-Quality Healthcare for Everyone
With dedicated health resources and caring, compassionate providers, Wellstar is making care more accessible to people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning (LGBTQ+).
Historically, many healthcare systems have not focused on the specific needs of the LGBTQ+ community. Wellstar Family Medicine Physician Dr. Gabriella Maris addressed the gap in care.
“The LGBTQ+ community has been marginalized by the healthcare system,” Dr. Maris said. “There is a lack of providers who have adequate training to understand and treat their unique health risks.”
Wellstar believes every person should have access to safe, high-quality healthcare. At each of our primary care locations, we maintain a welcoming, non-judgmental environment to treat patients.
“I want to be a very vocal advocate and ally for people who identify as LGTBQ+,” said Dr. Jeremy Neuman, family medicine physician at Wellstar Vinings Health Park. “I want them to know this is a safe place. I am here to support them in their health and life goals.”
Our family medicine practice in Atlanta also offers specialized health services to people who are LGBTQ+, making it easier to get care close to home.
“My goal with this practice is to address the specific needs of the LGBTQ+ community,” Dr. Maris said, who is a physician at the convenient Atlanta location.
Across Wellstar Health System, we’re committed to providing inclusive medical services in a safe, comfortable space to make LGBTQ+ care more available.
