Pride Network

In a perfect world, gay and lesbian health concerns could be addressed in any primary care office. Sometimes, people in the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LBGT) community don't feel safe and supported in a standard medical office. That's especially true of people facing tough medical choices. The MetroHealth Pride Network is different.

Our Pride Clinic was the first LGBT clinic in Cleveland dedicated to serving the LGBT community. Specially trained physicians and staff provide care that respects your unique health needs—including transgender services. We offer the routine care you need to stay healthy. It's primary care plus.

Primary Care Services

  • Adult, adolescent and pediatric care

  • OB-GYN care

  • Family planning

  • Smoking cessation

  • Controlling your cholesterol numbers

  • Lowering your high blood pressure

  • Immunizations

  • Physical exams

Specialty Care Services

In addition to routine health services, we will assist you with sensitive, medical conditions, such as:

  • HIV testing

  • Care for HIV-positive patients

  • STI screening and treatment

  • Medical and behavioral health services for LGBT and questioning youth

We work with you on risk prevention and provide a supportive presence if you have anything at all you'd like to discuss. No topic is off-limits.

There is no medical certification for LGBT medicine, but our treatment team has a great deal of experience and expertise in treating people in the gay community. Our providers are all focused on LGBT health, and they are active nationally and internationally with WPATH.
