About Dr. Renee M. Betancourt

I enjoy practicing the full scope of Family Medicine including: chronic diseases like diabetes and hypertension, women's health, family planning, pre-natal care, obstetrics (I delivery babies at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania), LGBTQ healthcare including gender-affirming hormone therapy and PREP, pediatrics, mental health like depression and anxiety, and adult care. I teach medical students and residents, and I believe that patients have so much to teach our medical learners too!
