QueerDoc: GSBA Member Spotlight

Starting June 1, QueerDoc, GSBA member business, will provide queer- and gender- focused healthcare online patients anywhere within the state of Washington. Services are provided by Dr. Crystal Beal, Board Certified Family Medicine provider.

QueerDoc’s practice is entirely based in telehealth: video visits through medically secure software similar to Skype.

Excitement abounds for the potential for this model of care because of the time it affords Dr. Beal with patients while improving access to culturally competent care.

“As a provider, more traditional models and systems of care have not allowed me the time I feel needed to provide my best patient-centered care in a sustainable fashion,” say Beal.

“As a queer person, I have personally experienced outright discrimination as a patient in addition to generally having to educate my providers. I hope to change the experience of care for my LGBTQ* community with QueerDoc.”

QueerDoc provides hormone therapy, surgery, and mental health referrals for gender expansive patients. They also provide PrEP, STI screening, contraception, and treatment for erectile dysfunction in the setting of feminizing hormone therapy. 

“While I personally have a special passion for working with nonbinary patients, I really enjoy working with all of my queer community- trans, trans*, gay, lesbian, bisexual, poly, queer, and all of the other colors of our beautiful rainbow in need of queer and gender focused healthcare,” says Beal.

“We are starting on a smaller scale with goals of growth to additional states and funding for sliding scale and subsidized care.”
