about us

A Doctor with a Passion for Inclusive Healthcare

Spectrum Medical’s journey began when Dr. Thanes Vanig, our Chief Medical Officer, noticed a critical gap in healthcare – a shortage of HIV doctors. Driven by his passion for providing specialized care and creating a safe place for people of all backgrounds, he founded Spectrum Medical in 1997.

In 2016, Spectrum Medical joined the City of Phoenix Fast-Track Cities Initiative, a global initiative aimed at ending new cases of HIV by 2030. As part of this effort, we provide treatment and support to those living with HIV and strive to prevent new infections through education and access to services like PrEP and PEP. 

Spectrum Medical – Your Whole Healthcare Solution

Beyond specialized care, we offer primary care services to empower patients to achieve their best health. As a nonprofit organization, our community outreach program,, provides healthcare services at events across Maricopa County, including primary care, HIV/STI testing, PrEP, PEP, sexual health education, and preventative care.

Spectrum Medical offers a wide range of healthcare services, ensuring comfort and care at every step. We welcome new patients and accept most major medical insurance plans. Experience the Spectrum Medical difference – where pride and care come together.

As a practice dedicated to the LGBTQ+ community, Spectrum Medical is proud to be a safe space for every “body!” We recognize every body is unique, and we are dedicated to ensuring our patients know they have options to achieve their optimum health. Our supportive and compassionate staff is committed to our patients’ safety and success through trust, respect, and empowerment. If you require immediate assistance concerning your health, you are in the right place!
