Southampton Healthcare’s mission is to provide high quality healthcare to our patients. We are committed to serve a diverse clientele with state of the art medical knowledge and compassionate care. We are here to partner with you in maintaining your health and well being.
Dr. David Prelutsky, Medical Director and Founder of Southampton Healthcare, started his private practice in 1986, and has been in the practice of general medicine since that time. Although the practice includes a diverse clientele, he has been serving the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and HIV-positive community from the beginning. He has been a pioneer in the treatment of HIV in the primary care setting and has extensive expertise in this field. In addition he has been conducting HIV clinical trials to expedite the release of new medications.
Dr. Tassy Hayden joined the practice in 2017 and has enjoyed learning about the special needs and lifestyles of our patients. She enjoys being of service to all St. Louisans, especially the LGBTQI+ community. She is active in transgender activism and is DEA certified to treat opioid addiction with buprenorphine (suboxone).
Both physicians are on-staff at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and hold clinical faculty appointments at Washington University School of Medicine. They are actively involved in the clinical education of medical students and residents such as Dr. Samuel Tochtrop, who is in training in Internal Medicine (Primary Care Track) at Barnes-Jewish Hospital.
Dr. Hayden and our two nurse practitioners (Aida Trivic and Yuriko McCallister) are female and use she/her pronouns, and Drs Prelutsky and Tochtrop are male and use he/him pronouns.
