We are committed to improving the way transgender people receive health care in our region and eliminating barriers to care.

We offer preventive sexual health care services as well as hormone therapy for transgender and gender non conforming people. Patients under our care receive a written prescription for hormones which they fill at a pharmacy. Planned Parenthood does not provide pharmacy services for hormones.

Pubertal suppression?

Yes, we offer this to transgender and gender non-conforming adolescents who are entering puberty and wish to prevent the irreversible and undesirable changes that develop. Parental permission is required for this service.

How do I make an appointment?

Whether you're already a patient or would like to become a patient, simply call 1.800.230. PLAN (7526) or click here to make your appointment online. Patients should obtain their medical records from the previous provider and bring them to their Planned Parenthood appointment. (We can help you with this!)

I’m already on hormones, can I transfer my records to Planned Parenthood and become a patient? 

Yes. If you are already being seen by a medical provider for transgender services but you wish to transfer your care to Planned Parenthood you can do that. Just make an appointment and speak with a member of our team.

How much does it cost?

We have billing staff ready to help you figure out costs and payment for any service; we can give you their contact information as part of the initial appointment-making process if you request it. There is a fee for services but we may be able to bill your insurance. We work to keep the cost of our services as affordable as possible.
