What to Expect on Your First Visit and Beyond

Before you visit, please call to make an appointment and request gender affirming hormone therapy.

In most cases your clinician will be able to prescribe hormones the same day as your first visit. No letter from a mental health provider is required.

If you’re starting gender affirming hormone therapy, you’ll have an initial appointment with baseline lab work (blood draw) and then follow-up appointments. *

The receptionist may give you paperwork for the Family PACT Program (California locations only). *

All services are confidential (except in cases of abuse), so being open with the clinician will ensure that you are receiving the best health care. When you are called back to meet with the clinician you may be requested to provide a complete medical history, as well as a history of your sexuality and sexual practices in order for us to provide the best care.

You may consult with one of our clinicians and receive a physical assessment and lab testing as appropriate for monitoring hormones and your transition.

* Please check out any of our patient guides below for more specific information.
