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

Our transgender services

Primary care

Primary care physicians provide help with general preventive medicine, routine wellness care, and acute and chronic condition management. We offer primary care support by:

  • Prescribing hormones
  • Conducting routine anatomy-based cancer screenings
  • Prescribing pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP)
  • Providing specialist referrals
  • Performing sexually transmitted infection screenings

Plastic surgery

Transgender people who want to transition medically should look for qualified nurses and doctors who can provide the best treatments and care available. Saint Luke’s Plastic Surgery team 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. Playing a vital role in health care for the transgender population, they offer:

  • Referrals for surgery
  • Hormonal treatments


The transgender woman has special health needs and may visit a gynecologist for care after gender-affirmation surgery. On the other hand, a transgender man’s needs 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 a patients’ overall wellness, regardless of sexual orientation. 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.
