If you have ever had a difficult time finding the right medical providers – someone that you could talk to, took you seriously, and spent time getting to know you in a judgement-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:
Statistics like this are the reason that we need LGBTQ-friendly doctors in Orlando, and everywhere else too.
At Harmony Healthcare Orlando, 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 that 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:
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 the 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 Orlando 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.
Harmony Healthcare Orlando is here to show you the difference that comfortable and welcoming medical care can make in your life. Contact us today to take charge of your health!
