Below the Belt Clinic

We strive to meet our patients where they are. The Below the Belt Clinic offers comprehensive pelvic health screening and sexual health care to all who need these services. Our team is committed to creating a safe, welcoming, and non-judgmental environment in which patients feel comfortable talking about their sexual health issues. Also, all exams are conducted with a chaperone present in the room for the entire visit. We specialize in caring for patients who may have had PTSD related to prior sexual trauma or have had previous negative medical exam experience.
