Endocrinologist and the Transgender Patient
Transgender individuals from the Trans Solidarity Project, Long Island New York and around the country were asked to provide information regarding their experiences with seeking out hormone therapy and their dealing with endocrinologists, their treatment experiences, and office staff. This was accomplished utilizing an anonymous online survey. Participants were chosen based upon their association with online social groups and are self-identified as being transgendered. This information was gathered to empower transitioning transgender patients with information on what to expect when seeing an endocrinologist. Additionally, this document could provide a primer for new medical providers who are looking to serve the transgender community.
