New patient follow-up schedule
If you’re starting gender-affirming hormone therapy, you’ll have an initial appointment with baseline lab work (blood draw). Then we’ll need to see you for 3-month, 6-month and 12-month follow-ups with lab work to see how things are going, check in with you about the changes you are experiencing, and possibly check that hormone levels are in a therapeutic range for your desired effects. We may make dosage adjustments, based on your feedback and lab results. It’s your responsibility to call to schedule these appointments.
If your levels are stable and you’re happy with your treatment effects, after your 12-month visit we’ll want to see you once yearly for a follow-up appointment and labs unless you’d like to come in sooner.
If you want to change your dosage, or switch to a different medication, you’ll likely need a visit and labs first. At this visit, the provider will educate you about the medication and how to take it. Three months after changes to your medication, we’ll often need another visit and a set of labs to see how it’s going.
After your visit
You can expect a call from our Care Coordination team about one week after your hormone therapy visit to make sure you were able to access your medications. Additionally, our Care Coordination team provides follow-up services to help our patients with needs outside of hormone therapy, sexual, and reproductive health care.
