Welcome to APLA Health
LGBTQ+ Primary Care
Our medical services include checkups with our board-certified providers, annual physicals, cancer screenings, assistance with ongoing health issues such as high blood pressure or diabetes, specialist referrals, and much more.
We Believe in Healthcare for Everyone
Every person should be able to get excellent medical, dental, and behavioral healthcare. That’s why our services are free or low-cost and our board-certified medical providers do everything from regular checkups to helping you keep track of ongoing health issues. We serve everyone in the community, and we also specialize in the health needs of LGBT individuals. We do not discriminate based on race, ethnicity, physical disabilities, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, HIV status, religion, age, or ability to pay.
Welcome to Your Medical Home
A medical home is a team approach to providing healthcare. We believe staying healthy is a team effort. It’s not simply about us telling you what to do or medications to take. It’s about talking, asking questions, and sharing information. Your healthcare team will work with you to help you find the best ways to manage your own wellness. We provide quality care based on what has been proven to work best. We want you to live a long and healthy life.
APLA Health’s mission is to increase healthcare equity for underserved communities, especially the LGBTQ+ community. We provide a safe space for LGBTQ+ patients and clients to receive inclusive services and care. We offer trust and open communication to improve care, and ultimately the health of LGBTQ+ people.
