Medical Services

All providers listed with the Transgender Health Program are accepting new transgender patients.

To schedule with a clinician whose profile indicates they are not accepting new patients, please indicate you are seeking transgender-related health care upon contacting a clinic. If you are experiencing any difficulties accessing a clinic or provider, please contact us.

For patients seeking specialty care not associated with gender transition, please contact us so that we can provide assistance in identifying a specialist who is transgender-affirming.
