"Dr. Rongitsch (she/her) is a board-certified primary care physician practicing internal medicine. She grew up in St. Paul, Minnesota, attended Marquette University for undergraduate studies, and graduated from University of Minnesota Medical School. After medical school, she moved to Seattle to complete a three-year residency in internal medicine at Virginia Mason Medical Center. While in residency, she also worked at the International District Medical Clinic. This experience further developed her interest in public health, and led her to Pike Market Medical Clinic where she worked for eight years, serving low-income and uninsured patients, seniors, immigrants, the homeless and LGBTQ communities. She then continued her practice for four years at Pacific Medical Center. Over the past twelve years, Dr. Rongitsch has been involved in medical education, teaching residents and medical students from Virginia Mason and University of Washington. She is also a Fellow of the American College of Physicians (FACP). For several years running (2015-2020) Dr. Rongitsch has been named a Seattle Metropolitan Top Doctor for Internal Medicine and Transgender Health."
"Capitol Hill Medical is an LGBTQ focused clinic that exists to serve the unique medical needs of the Seattle LGBTQ community. Gay, Lesbian, Trans*, and those patients in between often have significant distrust of the medical community - the result of an inability of providers to relate to or understand them, the fear of being judged, and in the worst cases, outright discrimination. We are LGBTQ clinicians in Seattle offering primary care services to gays, lesbians, bisexuals, trans,* and queer patients, as well as our allies and friends. Among our clinical interests are sexual health, HIV management, and hormone therapy to our trans* patients who are in transition.
Our mission is to improve the health and well-being of our patients by offering the highest quality evidence-based medicine in a setting of open acceptance.
Our goal is to create a clinic where you feel safe, celebrated, and healthy. Ultimately, we believe that compassion begins with self-identity, and have founded our clinic to model acceptance, open and honest healthcare, and to provide answers for the unique issues that we face in our lives. We strive to provide the holistic, personalized, and empowering care that our community deserves."
