Homophobia is a health hazard, especially when it comes from your healthcare provider. Montrose Clinic offers lesbian-friendly providers, sensitive to the needs of women, to help you be more comfortable and proactive about your health. We offer a full line of services to all women regardless of HIV status, including Pap Smears, Pelvic and Breast exams, contraception counseling, referral resources for abnormal Pap Smears, evaluation and treatment of vaginal and urinary tract infections, Mammography referrals, HIV counseling and testing, and STD diagnosis and treatment. It is hypothesized that lesbians are at higher risk for breast cancer due to higher rates of risk factors such as obesity, alcohol consumption, not baring children, and lower rates of breast cancer screening. We offer convenient appointment times and low-cost services--call 713-830-3000 for more information.
