A wonderful article on Dr. Iris Romero’s longstanding dedication and efforts to improve LGBT+ patient care. An excerpt:

“When Iris Romero, MD, and her wife struggled to start a family 15 years ago, they weren’t warmly welcomed into many doctors’ offices. Some of the infertility doctors they met with weren’t willing to help same-sex couples have a baby. Romero and her wife would have their treatment appointments cancelled without notice, incurring significant financial and emotional costs.

A lot has changed since then, and today, many physicians are more comfortable with lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) patients and their health care needs, such as same-sex family planning, hormone therapy or gender-affirming surgery.”
