To begin care:
At PPGOH, you’re in charge of your care, which is why we want to ensure you have all of the information and resources you need to make informed choices. At the time of your appointment, you’ll receive all of the information about your medication, including the benefits, risks, and expected side effects and changes.
Criteria to start hormone therapy includes, but is not limited to:

A therapist’s letter is not required to begin hormone therapy at our health centers. However, many people find therapy to be beneficial, particularly during what can often be an exciting and/or stressful time. Our health centers are happy to recommend trans- and nonbinary - friendly therapists in the area.
