Lindsey Piper (Mabel Wadsworth Center)—Bangor
Provider: Lindsey Piper
Credential: Nurse Practitioner
Practice/ Agency Name: Mabel Wadsworth Center
Why do you believe this provider, agency, or clinic should be listed in this database?
Both as a patient and a colleague, I can vouch that Lindsey provides incredibly compassionate trans-competent care. As a queer survivor of trauma, Lindsey makes me feel safe and in control of taking care of my sexual and reproductive health. She has also been amazing with my new adventure into HRT and focuses on helping me meet my goals, rather than trying to force me into a strict binary.
Does this provider, agency, or clinic have any regular education on quality of care with LGBTQ+ patience? If so, please describe that here
All staff receive a minimum of annual training on LGBTQ+ competence. Providing quality care to the LGBTQ+ community is a constant topic of discussion at Mabel Wadsworth Center, and staff receive further education through attending conferences, discussions at staff meetings, and conversations amongst staff.
If you are submitting an individual provider, what was your impression of the quality of care and interactions with other staff members you encountered in their workplace?
While not all staff are at the same (incredibly high!) level of knowledge/trans competence as Lindsey, everyone at Mabel's recognizes the importance of providing trans-friendly care and striving to always do better.
