Full Spectrum Health, LLC collaborates with Dr. Crystal Beal of QueerDoc in an effort to provide Gender Affirming Healthcare and STI testing services to anyone in Alaska, regardless of their physical location.
Dr. Crystal Beal, a queer and gender health physician, achieved Board Certification in Family Medicine. They have completed additional training in queer and gender care. They find providing care within their LGBTQAI2S+ community brings them joy. Dr. Beal feels grateful and excited to partner with Full Spectrum Health in order to provided care to the LGBTQAI2S+ community of Alaska.
Dr. Beal attended Florida State University College of Medicine in Tallahassee, Florida. While there, they helped found the LGBTQAI2S+ medical student group in order to raise awareness of LGBTQAI2S+ health issues. The group also improved training of future doctors regarding queer culture and health. After completing their Medical Degree in 2012, they attended internship and residency at Valley Family Medicine Residency Program. They graduated residency training in 2015. Now based in Seattle, they continued to see gaps in care for their queer community, so they decided to focus their care on LGBTQAI2S+ needs. They started a private practice, QueerDoc to serve Washington state, and they partnered with Full Spectrum Health to serve Alaska.
Personally, Dr. Beal stays involved with their queer community through local performing arts, social dancing, support groups, and fitness at gyms with non-discriminatory clothing policies. Their partner, Steph, joins them in dancing and daily life. Dr. Beal’s immediate queer family is rounded-out by their beloved dog, Zooey.
