Accessible Gynecologists

The following gynecologists are recommended by members because of their healthy attitude towards women with disabilities, and accessible clinics. Please keep in mind these are the opinions of their patients. Your opinion may vary.

United States


Woman’s Care Clinic
2900 Whipple Ave # 135
Redwood City, CA 94062
Phone: 650-366-5594
Accessible Features: Elevator, good parking, low table, accessible bathroom right in the clinic
Observations: Mostly female doctors, one male. I prefer the female doctors. They were respectful and explained things well. Good clinic, feminist, great nurses and physician assistants and doctors.

Dr. Shashi B. Acharya
Acharya and Sharma Medical Corporation
1240 E. Chapman Ave,
Orange, CA 92866
Phone: (714) 771-2800
Accessibility Features: adjustable exam table, large exam rooms, wide hallways
Observations: He’s not a gynecologist, but he is an internist. His parking lot is small, with only 1 H/C spot. Sometimes I have trouble with this because he sees a lot of seniors, but most of the time it is not an issue. The front office people are often “rushed” because they have busy phones, but they are always pleasant. The nurses/assistants are awesome, and listen to me when I need to explain things about spasms, etc.


Dr. James Kel Harper
Georgia Obstetrics and Gynecology
5780 Peachtree Dunwoody Road
Suite 320
Atlanta, GA 30342
Phone: (404) 256-2943
Accessible Features: Staff make whatever adjustments you need
Observations: Doctor is male, early 50’s. Doctor Harper not only delivered without a hitch my high risk pregnancy he also did my ovarian cyst surgery, again brilliantly. Most of all, he is a reassuring positive human being. As my disability progresses, he and the staff always make me feel comfortable and able. Best of all, when a mammogram clinic he sent me to horribly mistreated me, one call to him and he came to my defense. He personally called the head of the hospital the clinic was connected with and made sure they got their act together. A year later when I, with his encouragement, went back to that same clinic, they NOW have a REAL “made just for ladies in wheelchairs” set up. I am made to feel like I am just another “lady”. It’s just normalizing without pandering to my disability. Doctor Harper is a positive caring doctor who somehow makes each of us (I have several friends who go to him) feel like we are his only patient. He has a great spirit and makes exams as positive as possible.


Dr. Karen Scott
Scott, Jonah & Associates, PSC
101 Medical Heights Dr #D
Frankfort, KY 40601
Phone: (502) 875-2468
Accessible Features: Electric adjustable tables, extremely well-informed and kind staff. There’s adequate parking and no barriers for wheelchair users from parking lot to exam rooms.
Observations: Dr. Scott is a middle-aged female. She’s Catholic, but has been exceptionally open-minded about my options for birth control and other sexuality issues. She’s amazingly patient, informed, and treats you holistically. Not only have I received excellent care from Dr. Scott, but she’s also given me a number of referrals to other competent, friendly, and welcoming medical professionals. I’ve been connected to dermatologists, orthopedics, and other branches of medicine thanks to her keen eye during exams and swift referral. They recently went over and above their responsibilities to gain insurance coverage for a particular drug I needed. I’m treated like an adult woman capable of making my own decisions. She’s developed a positive relationship with me and I feel comfortable disclosing private medical information to her. I’d strongly recommend this doctor for women with disabilities in the area. In my opinion, if your insurance provided coverage, I would even drive from Lexington or Louisville for her services.

Dr. Julierut Tantibhedhyangkul
Cleveland Clinic
Richard E. Jacobs Health Center
33100 Cleveland Clinic Blvd.
Avon, OH 44011
Phone: (440) 695-4000
Accessibility Features: wide hallways, adjustable table
Observations: The Cleveland Clinic can be annoying to deal with in general, but Dr. Tan is worth it. She takes her time during appointments if needed. I’ve definitely had exams that hurt, but never with her. She has also never doubted my level of pain or pushed me during an appointment. I find that she’s incredibly knowledgeable and willing to try many types of treatment. While she asks many questions about my history, she seems to know when it’s pushing too much and has never felt like she’s prying.

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Phone: (412) 641-4030
Accessibility Features: adjustable table, wheelchair scale, trained & competent staff, doctor will take all the time that you need and not even if it is more than one hour.
Observations: Plan to spend several hours there because they plan to keep you that long. The give complete service because they know its difficult to come back sometimes. Very personal attention, no rush, very good followup, nurse will answer questions and provide technical assistance anytime during the year on many topics. I’ve been going to the clinic for 10 years. The staff and doctors have changed during that time but they have consistently gotten better. Only doctors and nurses who want to be there are there.
