I am a family physician. I decided to make a change for myself because I wasn't enjoying medicine anymore. Too many things were getting between me and the people who trust me with their care. This is my opportunity to better connect with those who honor me by calling me their doctor. I want to build this practice with help from my community and those who often feel shamed in the medical setting: those struggling with substance use and the LGBTQ community.
Dr Kathy Oriel is solo family physician who has been caring for and advocating for LGBTQ+ people and people who struggle with substances her entire career. She enjoys caring for all humans throughout the lifespan.
