Inclusion Health Clinic FAQ

Do you require a letter from a mental health provider to start gender-affirming hormone therapy?
In most cases, we do not require a letter and begin gender-affirming hormone therapy using the "informed consent" model.
Nevertheless, we encourage patients to have an ongoing relationship with a mental health provider to assist with the emotional, social and physical changes that can accompany the start of hormone therapy. In rare circumstances, your medical provider may request a letter of clearance from a mental health provider prior to initiating hormone therapy.
Does the clinic offer gender-affirming surgeries?
There are many kinds of gender-affirming surgical procedures, such as facial feminization, tracheal shave, breast augmentation or reduction, body contouring, orchiectomy, vaginoplasty, metoidioplasty and phalloplasty.
Our surgical specialists provide some, but not all, of these procedures. You can discuss these with an Inclusion Health Clinic provider during a visit.
Do you see children?
We can see patients age 15 and older.
Do you offer urgent care visits?
We do not have walk-in visits available at this time. We may, however, be able to see patients for same-day visits if providers have appointments available.
