LGBTQ Care Q&A

What is LGBTQ care?

LGBTQ care refers to any type of health and wellness treatment for individuals in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, or transgender community. At Chinn GYN, the team offers a space for all human beings to explore and become the people they are truly meant to be. The team provides a comprehensive range of services for LGBTQ patients in all stages of life.

Whether you’re seeking hormone therapy or surgical intervention, the team can help you navigate the next steps in your transition.

What are the different types of LGBTQ care?

The team at Chinn GYN performs a number of in-office treatments and facilitates specialist services to provide individualized LGBTQ care. Some of the most common types of LGBTQ care the team offers include:

Gender-affirming care

Gender-affirming care refers to the specialized medical care transgender and gender non-conforming individuals need to lead healthy, fulfilling lives. These may include a variety of routine medical services and surgical and mental health care.

Surgical referrals

Gender reassignment surgery is an important step in the transition process. Whether you’re seeking male-to-female or female-to-male surgery, the team can facilitate the referral process to ensure you get the complete care you need.

Hormone therapy

Hormone therapy modifies your hormone levels to better match the gender with which you identify. It can also help modify physical characteristics, such as facial hair, menstruation, and your voice.

By partnering with an experienced medical provider, you can receive the appropriate laboratory work, routine exams, and hormone testing you need to look and feel like your gender identity.

Mental health care

Navigating the mental health challenges of the transition process can be difficult without the right support. Chinn GYN offers a variety of mental health services for LGBTQ patients and can refer you to specialists if necessary. 

Whether you’re ready to start the transition process or simply need a medical professional to consult with, the team at Chinn GYN serves as an ally for the LGBTQ community. To schedule an appointment, call Chinn GYN, LLC, or book online today to learn more.
