Saint Luke’s is committed to high-quality, inclusive medical care for all in a safe and accepting environment. That is why we have assembled a multispecialty team to specifically care for transgender patients. 

Comprehensive care for the transgender community

Primary care

Primary care providers provide help with general preventive medicine, routine wellness care, and acute and chronic condition management. Our supportive primary care providers:

  • Provide gender-affirming care
  • Prescribe gender-affirming hormones using informed consent
  • Perform routine testing for sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
  • Prescribe pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP)
  • Perform individualized cancer screenings
  • Refer to allied providers
  • Practice trauma-informed care
  • Are body positive and respect the diversity of sexual expression
  • Offer in-person and virtual visits

Plastic surgery

Transgender individuals who want to transition medically deserve qualified nurses and doctors who can provide the best treatments and care available. Saint Luke’s Plastic Surgery experts cares for the unique surgical needs of all transgender patients. They provide surgeries for female-to-male and male-to-female transitions, including:


Endocrinologists are physicians who specialize in glands and hormones. These specialists provide and essential  
role in health care for the transgender population, and offer:

  • Referrals for surgery
  • Hormonal treatments


The transgender woman has special health needs and may visit a gynecologist for care after gender-affirmation surgery. The needs of transgender men must be addressed by a gynecologist. Our providers offer a wealth of services including:

  • Minimally invasive hysterectomies
  • Cervical and other cancer screenings
  • Family planning
  • Contraceptive counseling

Behavioral health

Addressing mental health needs is a critical part of all patients’ overall wellness, regardless of how they identify. Our psychiatric team includes members who have a special interest in working with transgender and gender-fluid patients.

They have experience helping patients face the adjustment challenges that can arise prior to, during, or post-transition, including depression, anxiety, trauma, and substance abuse.

Social work

Our licensed clinical social workers have experience working with individuals, couples, and families, with a specific interest in helping members of the LGBTQ+ community. They can provide referrals and letters for treatment to medical providers on behalf of transgender patients.
