It’s common knowledge that gender bias exists in the workplace, but it also exists in the health care system. Dr. Arnold, a Board-certified gynecologist, explains how gender bias affects the capacity of physicians and health care practitioners to hear and believe their female patients. Dr. Arnold is a Board-certified gynecologist in private practice at Inner Balance Pelvic Health & Wellness Center in Newington. She sees routine gynecology patients and specializes in pelvic pain disorders, giving her clear insight into the problems that exist within the structure of our current medical care models. In 2016, she co-founded a nonprofit organization, Hope On Haven Hill, which opened in her family’s home, providing residential substance use treatment to pregnant women and their newborns.
