Our team

About Open House Team

Our team has grown in size considerably since we first opened our doors in 2006.

The owner of the company, the receptionists and laboratory technicians, all of them are involved in your visit to Open House.

Each one has undergone a high level of professional training, received training in this field and has been selected to work in Open House because of their ability to work with a human approach, dignity and high quaility work, things we give top priority to in this company.

Interviews with the Open House team

  • What is the contribution of Dr. Steve Chapman at Open House?

    I think I can provide four important things to our clients:

    (1) A good mixture of medical knowledge because I have broad-based training in general medicine. I’m able to investigate, diagnose and treat a variety of pathologies. I consider myself to be a sensible doctor.

    (2) My experience in clinical investigation has taught me the need to practise evidence-based medicine, in other words, applying the results of well-performed clinical trial which in turn improves my work performance and medical decisions.

    One of my most important functions in Open House is to manitain quaility standards as time goes by and each year I make good this pledge to our clients by updating our 25 Standard Operating Procedures, our clinical guides which take their contents from evidence published in clinical journals, each year incorporating new changes that have been published every 12 months.

    The updating of our protocols is so that you are clients don’t have to worry when you come to see us, because our team sign in their contracts an compulsory clause to comply fully with these procedures. In this way, you get a fully updated service without realising it.

    (3) I am very openminded and this helps me to get closer to my patients and thus makes diagnosis more easy. I like to practise medicine involving the patient. It’s not my job to judge people, rather just give them a practical solution. I hope that all of this is apparent in a consultation with me.

    (4) My time working in the pharmaceutical industry has taught me a sense of “fair competition”. Being a highly regulated industry they are not able to make outrageous claims in their marketing and promotion. You must provide evidence before saying your new drug is “better” or “superior”. I believe I try to apply this philosophy to our advertising in Open House. It breaks my heart to see other clinics in this field with a glint in their eye faced with a nervous patient who will be susceptible to spending money. Medicine should not be practised like that and it’s a lack of respect to the patient and to our profession. I don’t work that way so that I’m able to sleep peacefully at night with a clear conscience.

  • Aitor, what do you bring to the team?

    I think that the moment when you finally come to my room for the test can be very tense and so I try to transmit a sense of calm and efficiency for our clients.

    We try to offer a high standard of service working within the remit of protocols and strict procedures so that the patient doesn’t have to worry about these things, and I believe that I pay a great deal of attention in the importance of maintaining compliance.

  • Yara, what is your experience in this field?

    Originally I worked not just as a general physician but as a gynaecologist, so clearly the sex life of my patients is an important consideration in my work. From February 2016 when I entered Open House, I now work with male patients and my experience with women’s sexual health helps a lot, but I just have to see things “from the other side”.

  • Diana is an associate psychologist of Open House Barcelona

  • Pablo, you’re in charge of the Madrid team. What kind of experience awaits our clients there?


    Coming into an STD clinic can be very stressful. You’re going to talk about some very personal things and do tests that can change lives. I want to transmit to our clients our philosophy of “demedicalising” the process; open dialogue, human treament and clinical precision. But we are human, not robots, so if something was unsatisfactory for you at Open House, please don’t hesistate to let me know.

    I feel fortunate to be working in Open House, which is not just a clinic but a work ethic that involves not just the self evident values and attitudes with which I myself identify, but also an acceptance of sexual diversity and no judgemnet fo clients.
