Meet Our Cincinnati Providers: Marshal Thaxter, APRN

Meet Nurse Practitioner, Marshal Thaxter, APRN

What can you tell us about your experience prior to joining Equitas Health?

Before Equitas Health, I worked as a nurse practitioner(NP) specializing in addiction and behavioral health, which are both passions of mine. I began my career as an NP at The Little Clinic. It’s great training for new NP’s, because it’s fast-paced and requires you to be very autonomous.  


What excites you most about joining Equitas Health?

I am excited to be part of an organization with a mission that aligns so closely with my values.

 What is your vision for the Equitas Health Cincinnati Medical Center?

I want us to be known as a welcoming and affirming healthcare home, and a place where patients can count on receiving top quality care informed by LGBTQ+ health concerns and evidence-based practices.

What are your areas of expertise or specialties?

I am particularly passionate about men’s health and mental health. I am board certified in Family Practice, and I’m currently working on board certification in Mental Health/Psychiatry.

What are three things we might be surprised to learn about you?

  • My first degree was in urban planning.
  • One of my hobbies is furniture making and carpentry.
  • I have an embarrassingly low tolerance for spicy food.

What is something you are looking forward to doing once shelter in place/social distancing orders are lifted?

I am looking forward to eating ALL the food at ALL the restaurants and going to City Flea.


Please join us in welcoming Marshal to the Equitas Health family!
