The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Questioning (LGBTQ) Clinic is staffed by two primary care physicians, Nicole Nisly, MD (Internal Medicine) and Katie Imborek, MD (Family Medicine). We focus on comprehensive primary care for adult and child (over 10) LGBTQ patients delivered by providers and staff with expertise in the needs of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer communities. Every member of our staff has undergone training through the Safe Zone Project to ensure an environment that is welcoming and affirming for all our patients.
