LGBT Q & A

Gresham Women's Healthcare, PC

Why does Gresham’s Women’s Healthcare offer services focused on the LGBT community?

At Gresham Women’s Healthcare, we recognize the unique health needs and concerns patients in the LGBT community have, and we also understand patients in the LGBT community may not always feel comfortable discussing their health needs, especially when they’re not sure if their healthcare provider supports their lifestyles.

Our healthcare team believes there’s beauty in diversity, and we strive to provide every patient with confidential, compassionate care that’s based on a deep desire to improve their health and their quality of life.

Our goal is to be a safe haven for people from the entire community, providing ready access to the most innovative treatment options and the highest quality care in a comfortable, relaxing, welcoming environment.

What kinds of health services does Gresham’s Women’s Healthcare offer for the LGBT community?

Gresham Women’s Healthcare is dedicated to providing comprehensive, patient-centered care for LGBT patients, including critical health screenings and exams as well as counseling with gender identification issues, gender reassignment, and other OB/GYN and emotional health needs to help patients face the challenges and potential obstacles in their lives. Our treatment services include:

  • Pelvic exams to identify potential health problems
  • Cancer screenings, HPV screenings, and other health screenings aimed at preventing serious diseases
  • Treatment of bladder and pelvic floor disorders
  • STD testing and treatment
  • Menopause counseling and treatment
  • Complete obstetric care, including care for women with high-risk pregnancies
  • In-office procedures for the diagnosis and treatment of an array of medical issues
  • Reproductive counseling and services to help patients and their partners learn about their options for starting (or adding to) their family
  • Referrals to other healthcare providers and specialists who support the unique medical and emotional needs of members of the LGBT community

Dr. Knight is a proud member of World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH) and a dedicated expert in all matters of LGBT care. All four providers create a safe space for people of all walks of life and see ALL patients, regardless of what gender they identify with, whether it be for routine medical care, adjusted screening, hormone management, or hysterectomy and removal of ovaries.

We also work closely with Oregon Reproductive Medicine to help plan childbearing for women with female partners, including caring for patients during pregnancies and beyond. This care extends to surrogates carrying for gay couples.

Do you provide IVF or IUI fertility services?

No, however, we can provide referrals to highly-qualified fertility practices in the area to help patients learn more about IVF and IUI, and we can also provide counseling for patients considering those services.

How can I learn more about the services you provide?

If you have questions about the services and treatment options we offer, we’re happy to help. Call the office and speak with one of our staff, or better yet, schedule a consultation appointment to learn more.
