Dr Fabiola Martin
Sexual Health Physician
FAChSHM, FRCP, Dip GUM, DTMH, DFFP, Dip HIV, PGCME, FHEA, Dr medicinae universalis
My name is Fabiola Martin and I have recently joined Stonewall as Sexual Health, HIV and HTLV specialist. I am one of two Sexual Health Physicians and one of three in Queensland. I have been working in this field since 1998 in the UK and moved to Brisbane in 2017. I have been a clinical academic and medical educator since 1997.
Improving patients’ experience of their sexual and mental health, while providing up-to-date research informed care are two main motivators of my practice. I am an independent prescriber and provide clinical advice and care for adults, pregnant women and children; specifically, for groups of people at higher risk of exposure to sexually transmitted diseases (e.g. adolescents, Indigenous People, migrants, refugees, sex workers, LBGTI, Travellers, drug users, trafficked people etc.). I also provide partner and family testing and treatment where deemed necessary. I am passionate about supporting transgender people on their journey to achieve optimal well-being.
I have expertise in providing care to people worried about or living with Human T Leukaemia Virus (HTLV) as well as HIV, HBV and HCV.
I support women and girls seeking reproductive health advice (conception/contraception/TOP) and provide care for women, who have undergone female genital cutting. Comprehensive care is provided to people seeking advice on sexual dysfunction or chronic or acute pelvic pain.
Bulk-bulling is available. Please don’t hesitate to ask.
