Medical Specialists Gender Affirming Services
Our goal is to provide each individual we work with compassionate care to help you become the person you were meant to be. We want to create an environment where you feel safe and can openly talk about your sexual orientation, whether you identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, queer, intersex, transmasculine, transfeminine, gender non-conforming, non-binary, or any other identity.
We can assist you with feminization or masculinization of your body through bio-identical hormone therapy and ongoing hormonal maintenance once your desired results are achieved.
What to Expect During Your Visit
We take a personalized approach to care so the first appointment is dedicated to getting to know you, finding out about your goals, and working with you to develop the safest and best care plan possible to achieve your desired results. We will perform lab tests at this visit if you decide you want to move forward with treatment. The treatment would begin at the next visit.
Does Insurance Cover Transgender Care?
We are in network with most major medical plans, but each plan is unique. It is best if you call your insurance company to find out about your specific coverage, deductibles, and out of pocket costs.
Hormone Therapy and Mental Health
We follow the guidelines of The World Professional Association for Transgender Health and do require a referral letter from a qualified mental health professional to begin feminizing/masculinizing hormone therapy. Hormone therapy can affect your mood and how you feel. The physical changes that you go through are exciting but can create new challenges. We want this process to be a positive one for you so we highly recommend connecting with a mental health professional that specializes in this area to support you during this entire process.
There is a wealth of information included in the Standards of Care for the Health of Transsexual, Transgender, and Gender Nonconforming People by The World Professional Association for Transgender Health. We invite you to review the information to gain a better insight into what to expect with hormone therapy. Our provider will discuss your specific situation and what to expect with your treatment plan. Please feel free to come in with a list of questions. We want to help you gain as much knowledge as possible before making this very important decision.
We consider it a privilege to provide support to you during this important journey in your life!
