Who We Are 

Canopy Medical Clinic strives to be a radically inclusive, affirming, and sex positive clinic. Since opening our doors in early 2020, we’ve welcomed patients who are seeking an inclusive and welcoming medical facility. We specialize in Sexual Health and LBGTQIA+ Health. We are an affirming practice and welcome all LGBTQIA+ individuals and allies.  
 
We strive to provide the best care possible, especially to individuals with historically marginalized identities or who may be treated poorly in healthcare. This includes women, LBGTQIA+ individuals, and people seeking mental health treatment. Canopy Medical Clinic’s staff has the responsibility to educate themselves about their own biases towards those of different races, creeds, identities, cultures, mental abilities, sexual and/or gender orientations, HIV status, physical abilities, etc., and then to seek out education and consultation to prevent biases from interfering with our patients’ healthcare needs. We are committed to being a leader in affirming healthcare practices. We provide educational and training opportunities to organizations within our community to help spread awareness and information regarding LBGTQIA+ healthcare barriers and current best practices. 

 

The majority of Canopy Medical Clinic’s patients identify as LGBTQ+ and see our providers for Gender-Affirming Hormone Care, sexual healthcare, PrEP, family planning, STI testing and treatment and yearly exams. Our providers also see patients for mental health medication management and for basic primary care services.
