Endocrinologists

The following is a list of endocrinologists (specialists in the body’s endocrine – hormone – system) who are known to work (supportively) with Transgender people. Please note that all the links are to external websites that are not within our control and so T-Vox cannot be held responsible for their content.

Informed consent means that you do not need a therapist’s letter to access a particular thing – usually hormones, sometimes surgery. You simply have to sign paperwork that says you understand what the risks and consequences are of taking hormones or having that particular surgery. This does not mean that all you have to do is ask and you’ll immediately be given hormones or scheduled for surgery. You may need to meet multiple times with the doctor to make sure that you’re entirely on the same page and the doctor is satisfied that you have sufficient understanding to sign an informed consent form. Whether a particular doctor or clinic does informed consent is entirely at their own discretion, as is how they do it. They may have a written policy about it.

One person says: ‘Dr Moore is actually a diabetes specialist but has seen a number of trans patients, though weirdly, I’m his first female one. He’d only seen trans guys before me. He’s really nice and stuff, though unfortunately quite conservative when it comes to HRT, so you might end up having to supplement through DIY if you’re MTF.’

Comment: Dr Emanuel Vlahakis is very kind and supportive. The clinic provides hormone therapy after receiving a psychiatrist’s letter of approval.

Dr Bronwyn GA Stuckey

AUSTRALIA
(08) 9389 8441

You will need a referral from your GP to see Dr Stuckey. You will need approval from a psychiatrist before she will treat you. She is in private practice, so she isn’t cheap.

Dr Tim Welborn
55 Hampden Rd
Nedlands WA 6009
AUSTRALIA
(08) 9389 8414

Dr Welborn is a very experienced and competent endocrinologist. He is very cautious. The downside to this is that it takes a long time to get up to a decent dose of HRT (about 6-8 months in one person’s case). The positive side is that your health is paramount. He does lots of bloodwork regularly. You will need a referral from your GP to see Dr Welborn. You will need approval from a psychiatrist before he will treat you. He is in private practice, so he isn’t cheap.

Hormone level tests can be ordered on the NHS by any general practitioner. It is worth discussing your needs for hormone level tests, and any other blood tests you may require (eg. liver function if taking hormones in tablet form) with your doctor.

Referral required. Technically he is an OB/GYN however he is the only source of HRT prescriptions in the Ottawa area for both Trans men and Trans women. He is extremely knowledgeable and will explain every test result so that you fully understand what is going on with your health. He will also write secondary surgery letters.

1514 481 0277

One person said in 2007: ‘Dr Tellier prescribes hormones without the need of a referral letter. He follows the liberal protocols established by some US clinics, with the objective to avoid young Trans people self-medicating. You have to sign a discharge and go through several blood tests, but usually you get your prescription within a month of the first visit. His usual dosage is 150mg Spironolactone and 7.5 mg Premarin, but he will prescribe other forms of oestrogen if you ask for it. You have to return to the clinic every 3 months to have blood tests. He is very serious about health issues. My own HRT was delayed because I had some liver issue he wanted to investigate. Unfortunately, his clinic is opened only to people 25 and younger … don’t bother going there if you are older. I don’t know if he will take patients outside of the province Québec.’

Dr Jeelani is actively seeking Trans patients. If you are already on hormones and switching to Dr Jeelani from a previous doctor, you will need to provide records from your previous prescribing doctor to make an appointment. If you are not yet on hormones and want to start, Dr Jeelani requires a referral letter from a face-to-face counsellor or therapist.
Financial information for people without insurance, accurate as of May 2012:
It’s a $400 deposit on the first visit. If you pay at the time of the appointment, it will be $242 in full. If you want a payment plan, it will be $404 total at $75.00 a month. For follow-up appointments to see Dr Jeelani, it will cost $155 if paid at the time of the visit in full. If you want a payment plan for follow-up appointments, it’s $258 total at $75.00 a month.

He doesn’t pretend to know it all, and will listen and discuss alternatives without coming across like he’s as the one who makes the decisions. He also makes no objection to my plans to rid myself of what are healthy, but female, organs, and has gone out of his way to help me investigate surgery options. Dr Gocial is one of the good guys.”‘

LGBT health center. “Transgender services include: primary care, hormone therapy and monitoring, supportive counselling and referrals as needed…Our clients include female-to-male and male-to-female transsexuals, genderqueer people, queens, trannyfags, and people who don’t feel that any label fits them. Our clients come from many different cultural backgrounds and all walks of life. Some come looking for hormones and genital surgery, some feel they are comfortable without either. Our trans health program focuses on helping patients determine their own transition and identity goals.” Payment is on a sliding scale, no therapist letter required to start hormones. Has a fantastic reputation for working with trans youth in particular, including those under 18.

From http://www.thetransitionalmale.com/endo : ‘From one of his FTM patients: “I found him to have a fantastic ‘bedside manner’. He has had many many FTM patients and is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to. His nurse (whose name escapes me) was awesome. She was so cool about helping me get through the indignity of the damn Gyno exam the doctor wanted me to have.”‘

Dr Smith has worked with many trans patients before–both ftm and mtf. He will do a pelvic exam yearly on ftm patients. Before starting me on hormones, he required that I chart my temperature every morning for a month so that he could start me off at a specific point in my cycle in order to immediately suspend it.
