We often categorize our health needs, separating them into mental health and physical health, but the reality is they work hand-in-hand with one another.

When we are experiencing poor physical health there is an increased risk of developing mental health problems. At the same time, if we are experiencing mental health problems, there is a high probability that our physical health is at risk as well.

PHYSICAL HEALTH:

  • Functional medicine protocols and dynamics
  • Getting to the root cause of issues
  • Managing chronic diseases and acute issues
  • Anti-aging
  • Hormone therapy
  • Autoimmune issues
  • Lifestyle coaching and management
  • Nutrition and Food sensitivities
  • Weight loss
  • Brain and Neurotransmitter issues
  • Gut issues
  • Skincare issues
  • Bio-chemical issues
  • Genetic assessments

LAB ASSESSMENT AND INTERPRETATION:

Clinical laboratory tests are a vital part of assessing your complete health needs. Diagnostic testing allows us to have a more accurate understanding of your issues and course of treatment.

Through lab testing and interpretation, we can identify root issues such as: hormonal imbalances, thyroid disease, gut health, autoimmune diseases, neurotransmitter health, genetic codes, nutritional deficiencies, weight loss issues, mental health imbalances, methylation imbalances, and a whole host of other valuable data.

All Ages.

In 2016, AARC joined with the Center for Medical Humanities and Ethics at UT Health San Antonio to house the new Pride Community Clinic (PCC), a student and doctor led effort to serve the uninsured and underinsured lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer community. The PCC will offer primary care for this community on designated evenings, while providing linkages to vital mental health, sexual health, and substance abuse services. The PCC further aims to expose interdisciplinary UT Health San Antonio student volunteers to the needs, concerns, and unique experiences of the LGBTQ population.

The Pride Community Clinic serves self-identified LGBTQ patients recruited through marketing and outreach to the greater San Antonio. PCC patients will be welcome regardless of sex, race, religion, national origin, socioeconomic status, insurance coverage, funding ability, sexual orientation, or gender identity. In addition, a special focus of the Pride Community Clinic will be to serve homeless LGBTQ populations and the local transgender community, two of the most vulnerable and underserved populations in the city of San Antonio.As it delivers primary care, the clinic will provide sexually transmitted infection testing, hormone replacement therapy for transgender patients, and connection to HIV Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP).

Patients must be 18 years of age or older. LGBTQ patients can be assured that all volunteers within the clinic are trained to be sensitive to LGBTQ issues.

The PCC currently operates one Wednesday evening per month between 5:00 PM and 8:00 PM and potential patients must make an appointment over the phone to secure one of the limited time slots.
