Gender-Affirming Care

Our mission is to promote health in transgender, non-binary and gender diverse communities through ensuring equal access to gender-affirming medications and procedures, and training staff to be trauma-informed and culturally responsive.

Our goal is to provide high-quality, evidence-based care that is patient-centered. We use an informed consent model to help patients make health care decisions that are safe and meet their goals. Patients along the gender spectrum will find a welcoming, supportive environment at all our clinics. Our staff work hard to address every patient with correct names and pronouns. Gender-neutral bathrooms are available in our clinics.

Our Gender Health Navigator assists patients seeking gender-affirming surgeries and procedures. Our Gender Health Nurse provides injection teaching and assists accessing hormones and other gender-affirming medications. Our Gender Health Clinician supports ongoing training and assistance with our medical provider team. We strive to support each person’s unique pathway and ensure our patients are seen, heard, and cared for in an inclusive manner.

At Country Doctor Community Health Centers, gender-affirming care is integrated into everyday primary care, so that you can get your hormones in the same place you get your wellness exams, cancer screenings, and treatment for acute and chronic health conditions.

Our services for transgender, non-binary and gender diverse patients include:

  • Gender-affirming medications (estrogen, androgen blockers, testosterone, etc.) and injection teaching as needed
  • Hormone therapy for adolescents and specialty referrals for younger patients as needed. We do not provide puberty blockers at this time.
  • Referrals for gender-affirming surgeries (e.g. vaginoplasty, chest reconstruction, etc.) and procedures (e.g. speech therapy, electrolysis)
  • Assistance obtaining mental health letters of support for gender-affirming procedures and referrals for internal or external behavioral health counseling as needed

Coordinated care with our other specialty programs to address sexual health, HIV, substance use disorder, and re-entry after incarceration as needed including sexual health, addiction medicine, reentry, and HIV
