Transgender/Nonbinary Hormone Therapy

We provide quality, compassionate care from an informed consent model for our transgender patients. We are committed to improving the way transgender people receive health care in our region and we proudly work together with our transgender community to lead the way in eliminating barriers to care. 

What

We use an informed consent model and serve transgender people and people at various places on the spectrum of gender identity and expression. Patients may receive some hormones on site and a prescription to fill at a pharmacy. We also provide referrals for other services.

Who

Whether you're looking to start hormone therapy or you're already seeing a medical provider for gender-affirming hormone therapy, you are welcome to receive this care at PPGNY. 

Cost

We can help you determine how to pay for gender-affirming hormone therapy, whether you have insurance or not. We provide care to everyone, regardless of ability to pay.
