Isabel Lowell, MD

Isabel Lowell, MD, (she/her/hers) grew up in Massachusetts, where she attended Williams College, followed by the University of Connecticut School of Medicine. She completed her family medicine residency in Lawrence, MA, where she learned to speak Spanish through caring for the primarily Dominican patient population. She moved to Atlanta in 2013 and joined the faculty at Emory University, where she started the gender clinic at Emory. While working at Emory, she completed an MBA at the Goizueta School of Business, graduating first in her class.

Lowell is driven by a sense of fairness and equality. She was drawn to do her residency in Lawrence, MA, for the opportunity to serve an underserved population. After moving to Atlanta, she realized that there are very limited options for trans people to get medical care. “I met several trans people in this area who told me they couldn't find a doctor who would treat them, not even for basic medical issues. As I started learning about hormone therapy and transgender medicine, I began to realize just how big the need is for trans care in the Southeast.”

Because of this lack of access to care for transgender and nonbinary people, Lowell started Queermed ( a telemedicine practice that provides hormone therapy to patients in 11 states across the Southeast.

Lowell has attended conferences and worked with experts around the country and is an expert in transgender medicine. She is a member of World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH), Gay and Lesbian Medical Association (GLMA), and gives lectures across the country to educate medical providers and students about transgender medicine.
