The Power of Gender-Affirming Care

Pride Month is a time to celebrate the LGBTQ community, to be proud of who one is, and to embrace their unique journey. It’s also a perfect opportunity to emphasize the importance of self-care. Self-care isn’t just about pampering oneself but prioritizing physical and mental well-being. Gender-affirming care plays a significant role in this journey.

A Transgender Advocate

Ari Kravitz is a transgender primary care physician at Spectrum Medical. In a recent interview with Univision, Ari shared his personal journey and experiences as a health specialist. He explained that his decision to become a doctor was deeply rooted in his own affirmation process. Ari realized there was a lack of adequate help and guidance during his journey, which motivated him to become a healthcare professional dedicated to filling that gap.

“I wanted to help serve my community and be a provider who understands what trans people and other people in the LGBTQ community have experienced and where we come from,”

Supporting Transgender Health

Gender-affirming care is a comprehensive healthcare approach that acknowledges and respects a person’s gender identity. It encompasses medical procedures and treatments and provides psychological, social, and emotional support. For transgender and gender-diverse individuals, this type of care is life-changing. It validates their identity and helps them lead authentic lives.

A Safe Space for Inclusive Care

At Spectrum Medical, we believe that healthcare should be a partnership between providers and patients, where open communication, trust, and respect are paramount.
