Discussion Thread: Fat-Friendly Healthcare Providers

Given our discussion of that vile WaPo piece yesterday, I thought it might be useful to open up a thread in which we could share recommendations for fat-friendly healthcare providers. If you have a doctor, any kind of doctor, therapist, alternative healthcare provider, who is fat-friendly—including dentists, optometrists, etc. who may simply provide chairs or other equipment who accommodate fat patients—and you feel comfortable leaving their name and location in comments, recommend away.

Also: There exist a number of resources online for fat people seeking to find fat-friendly healthcare providers, and you are welcome to drop links to those in comments, too.

Please note this isn't a thread for identifying doctors who aren't fat friendly. Positive recommendations only, so there's no risk of mistaking a warning for a recommendation.
