How do I make an appointment?
Whether you’re already a patient or would like to become a new patient, simply call us at 1-804-355-4358 and make your appointment.
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 hormone treatment but wish to transfer your care to Planned Parenthood you can do that. Depending on your most recent records and lab results you may need to come in for an initial lab visit.
Initial visit. Since hormones can affect patients physically and emotionally, we want to ensure patients understand local resources available to support a healthy transition and obtain information about the patient important to the patient’s medical provider. This appointment also allows us to gather informed consent to administer hormones.
Second visit. Examination and lab work plus discussion of goals and expectations, side effects, and risks of therapy with an advanced practice nurse. Once the medical provider feels the patient is medically ready to begin hormone treatment, they will begin to administer hormones.
In addition to offering transgender hormone provision, we also offer primary care, cancer screening, wellness education, STD testing and treatment, HIV testing, annual exams, pregnancy testing, birth control, emergency contraception, abortion care and more in an affirming environment.
For additional questions please call our transgender health services line at 804-482-6154.
