We care for transgender and gender non-binary individuals who are seeking feminizing or masculinizing hormone therapy.

We recognize that gender transition is a very individualized process that may involve hormonal treatment to reach your gender affirmation goals. Our endocrinologists (hormone specialists) will talk to you about the risks and benefits of starting hormone therapy treatment for gender affirmation. From there, the decision to start treatment is up to you.

Hormone therapy consultations are provided by our endocrinologist. To improve the success of your treatment, you will likely also meet a behavioral health expert and a social worker on our team. A mental health provider meets with new patients for a behavioral health “check in” and can assist with referrals for psychotherapy and other mental health needs if necessary.

Our goal is to provide you with the support and resources you need to ensure your gender-affirming hormone therapy is as safe and effective as possible. We strongly advise that all patients have a primary care provider to manage any co-existing health issues and for general health maintenance.
