Capital Health Plan
2140 Centerville Pl, Tallahassee, FL

To begin, I am a 318 lbs queer cis white woman. When I walked up to the counter, the desk attendant seemed to be in low spirits and acted that way towards everyone. I waited maybe 10 minutes before being called back. In those 10 minutes, I witnessed an elderly person holding the waiting room door open while the nurse pushed the patient through the door. I feel that it would have been more disability-friendly if they had automatic doors for this purpose. I used one of their size-inclusive seating options and I could not have been more pleased! Not only did I fit, but they were comfy. All of the seats were on the extended-side of the spectrum. A nurse named Kiera (sp?) called me back and was very kind and attentive to everything I was telling them. They, then, told me their name and the doctor’s name and walked out of the room. About 10 minutes later, Dr. Amanda Davis walks in and asked what’s going on. I have them my list of symptoms and was checked out. They asked if I had any regular pain and I said, “Besides general pain in my feet from standing for extended periods of time with my weight, no.” And that was the only time my weight was mentioned. I was told that the extended periods of time could be what is contributing to my neck pain. I was then told they had a shot that would help, but I asked for an alternative and was given one with no questions asked. Then, I was handed a detailed description of the visit, what medicines I was receiving, and printouts of neck and back excerscises (will be included). I was never asked my pronouns and saw “she” on the walk-out details. They didn’t ask for anyone else’s pronouns, just what was on paper. They have regular parking spaces close to the door, so if you don’t have this certification, you can still utilize these spots without doing something illegal. They also have “panic spots” designated in the parking lot. Another bonus: on the check-in sheet, they ask what language you would like for them to use to communicate with you.

I saw Dr Hillary Lowenstein, largely due to this recommendation on Ample (thanks!). The experience was initially a little mixed but later turned good. So the medical assistant asked me height and weight, I said "I'd rather not share that." She seemed caught off guard, recovered and said "well can I weigh you and not tell you?" I said "No thanks." She let it go. Dr Lowenstein did mention the impact of weight on sleep apnea a couple times, and the booklet she used had a whole page on weight loss and exercise. A nearly the end of the appointment she asks me for my weight. I again declined. She asked if my PCP knew my weight and I said yes. But here is where it changed for the better. I asked her if she had heard of Health at Every Size, and she admitted she hadn't. But when I started to explain about it she really lit up. And up until this moment she was really dry and technical, but suddenly she was engaged and interested and had thoughtful things to say. I told her about fat liberation community and how we had to consult each other to even find providers we could feel safe going to for healthcare, how we might avoid healthcare, how diets don't work, how toxic shaming is. She was nodding and smiling and said she wanted to do better and know more. Then we started talking politics too (day after midterm election). So not savvy, but really open. And I assume that I can expect good care from her that is not shaming. I bet her staff will keep asking me about my weight, which is what they are instructed to do. Oh, the waiting room chairs easily fit my size 20 body and would probably be ok for folks a little bigger, but I only saw this one sad armless chair available. Plus there was something about botox that I scowled at in confusion.
