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.
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.
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.
