Our Gender-Affirming Care model is built on freedom and fairness. You have the freedom to name what you need and want from your medical care team. We are here to listen and help you know what choices you have. We want you to always be honest with yourself and us about your needs. Our goal is to gain your trust and help you find your sources of strength.
At Equitas Health, we believe our role is to help Trans and gender non-conforming people live truly. People in healthcare too often act as hurdles rather than facilitators. We use Informed Consent and Shared Decision Making when planning your care and prescribing hormones. This means that we will give you all the information you want and need, so you can make choices that are right for you.
The care team understands Gender Dysphoria and supports patients as they affirm their identity. At Equitas Health, you do not need an okay from a psychiatrist or therapist to start gender-affirming hormone therapy. Your care team will listen to you and help you map out a hormone plan to reach your goals, including those that affirm non-binary or genderqueer identities. We know that no two paths to affirmation are the same.
Whether you are considering medical affirmation for your genderqueer/non-binary identity, feminization, or masculinization, we hope you will find the information in this guide helpful.
