Can your providers prescribe PEP and PrEP?

All of our primary care providers are qualified to prescribe these medications. It should be noted, however, that these medications do not protect against all STIs and doesn’t eliminate the need for safe sex practices. Taking these factors into account, along with your personal history and current health status, your provider will work to create a treatment plan for you.

Are your providers experienced with gender identity issues?

We recognize that binary standards of gender aren't sufficient for each of our patients. While we require your legal name and gender for insurance purposes, we offer tools within our app and website to share your gender identity, preferred pronouns, and preferred name. Our providers will use your preferred name during and between your visits. Additionally, our clinics are always equipped with gender-neutral bathrooms. Carbon Health continuously strives to improve accessibility and inclusivity, so our patients should feel free to provide open, honest feedback to our providers and staff.

Can your providers prescribe hormone therapy for gender affirming care?

Currently, we provide hormone management by referral, but plan to offer these services for our patients soon.

Which providers specialize in LGBTQ+ Health?

All the providers in Carbon Health’s primary care program are highly trained in the best and most up to date evidenced based practices and provide culturally competent care.
