Meet Our Pride+ Care Team

Addressing the Unique Healthcare Needs of LGBTQIA+ Individuals

Meet Our Pride+ Care Team

While Atrius Health has been proudly caring for the LGBTQIA+ community in our practices for decades, our comprehensive Pride+ Care program includes a core team of PCPs, along with behavioral health clinicians and other clinical team members who have additional training and experience to address the unique healthcare needs of LGBTQIA+ individuals.

Meet our Pride+ Care primary care providers (PCPs), who care for patients at our Cambridge and Boston – Copley Square locations, and our Pride+ Care team members.

If you are a new adult patient (18 years or older) looking to establish care with one of our Pride+ Care PCPs, you can book an appointment by using the links below their profile pictures or by calling our Central Registration team at 1-800-249-1767.

If you are a current Atrius Health patient who would like to select a Pride+ Care PCP or have any questions about the Pride+ Care program, please email our Pride+ Program Manager

Dr. Gonzalez obtained a BS in Biology from Tulane University and a combined medical and public health degree from the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. He completed his internship and residency at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) and is board certified in Internal Medicine. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Medicine at Harvard Medical School, an attending physician at BIDMC, and a certified HIV specialist with the American Academy of HIV Medicine. He was named the Outstanding Massachusetts Community Health Center Physician by the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers in 2016.

Prior to joining Atrius Health in 2022, Dr. Gonzalez served as medical director at Fenway Health, an LGBTQ+ focused federally qualified health center (FQHC) in Boston, for 16 years.

“Caring for LGBTQ+ patients is a passion for me. Queer people continue to experience negative health outcomes as a result of discrimination, stigma, decreased care access, and a lack of clinical and cultural competency in caring for this population. It’s extremely gratifying to be able to provide the kind of care to someone that they have been deserving and in search of their whole life; and to continue to provide that care across their lifespan, through the ups and downs they may face, helps to build strong relationships that are healing and will reduce these disparities.”

“My philosophy of care is to put the patient at the center of what we are doing. Together with the rest of their care team, I work with the patient to comprehensively assess their health and then review options for improving it. I believe in the value of continuity of care, seeing patients year after year to help them overcome new challenges or create new health goals.”

Dr. Roberts returns to Atrius Health, having previously practiced at our Chestnut Hill/West Roxbury practice. He is a graduate of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology where he conducted HIV research. He completed his general internal medicine residency at Brown University in Providence, RI, where he focused on HIV in primary care and the general healthcare of the LGBTQIA+ population of Rhode Island. 

Since completing residency, his focus has continued to be providing compassionate, empathetic and evidence-based care for underserved communities. As a member of the LGBTQIA+ community himself, his focus on this community is a personal one, which is why he is excited to care for patients in Atrius Health’s Pride+ Care program. 

“When it comes to LGBTQIA+ patients and their unique healthcare needs, my approach is to listen first. After that, I provide evidence-based guidance as a member of the larger medical team that will assist patients in their healthcare journey.”   
 
“When a patient comes to see me, they can expect to have the freedom to be their full selves while receiving compassionate, empathetic, and evidence-based healthcare from their medical team.”

Dr. Alonzo is a graduate of the University of Texas, San Antonio where he developed a clinical interest in HIV and LGTBQIA+ healthcare. He completed his Internal Medicine Residency at Yale in New Haven, Connecticut with clinical focus in HIV primary care. Chris developed a clinical interest in providing care for the LGBTQIA+ communities after identifying gaps in care during medical education, limited resources in community settings, and lack of open identification of providers within the communities. "I wanted to create a safe space for my communities and thought: why not be the example I was always seeking?" 

“In the spirit of openness and transparency, my hope is to be visible as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community working for the benefit of individuals within the LGBTQIA+ communities. I want to be available as a medical provider who is knowledgeable in areas of internal medicine, HIV care, and gender care; who provides a space that respects an individual's identity; and who builds a relationship that promotes health and wellness. Care with me would reflect a team-based approach between myself, my patient, and the team at Atrius Health Cambridge; a focus on evidence-based therapy; and efficient communication.”
