Transgender Health Care

Transgender Health Care

Transgender people simply want to live as their authentic selves and unfortunately face many hurdles in society including access to affirming and safe health care.

There are trans men, trans women, and those who identify outside of the gender binary. Individuals may identify as agender, non-binary, genderqueer, something else, or nothing at all. 

Transgender people are routinely discriminated against in many areas of their lives—health care included. More than one-quarter of trans people have been denied health care services because of their gender identity. M-Care believes that every person should have affirming health care, no matter their gender identity or expression.

M-Care offers gender-affirming hormone replacement therapy for transgender individuals of all ages. Our bioidentical hormone replacement therapy services include labs, medication, as well as ongoing monitoring, puberty blockers, and primary care.

For those people who want to take the steps needed to medically transition, our team will walk with you through every step of gender affirmation treatment.

M-Care co-owner Amanda has specialized training in hormone replacement therapy and is a member of the World Professional Association for Transgender Health and the U.S. Professional Association for Transgender Health. M-Care is a member of the Wichita LGBT Health Coalition

What does gender transition mean? According to transqeuality.org, this means different things to each trans person. For some people, this may include changing clothing, appearance, and name. For some, medical procedures or treatments including hormone replacement therapy, that help change physical characteristics are important. There isn’t one way to transition—all steps people take to reflect their true selves are valid.

Some ways in which a person can medically transition include:

  • Hormone therapy
  • Chest, face, genital, or other gender-affirming surgeries
  • Hair removal (face, body, in some cases genital hair removal if preparing for surgery)
  • Speech therapy
  • Fertility preservation (sperm/egg storage)

Transgender health care is a passion for the M-Care team, and we passionately advocate for equity and affirmation in all aspects of health care.

Due to Covid-19 ramping back up in our community, we are taking extra precautions to keep our patients and our staff safe.

Our updated Covid policy will be in effect starting July 20, 2020:

  • We are scheduling both in-person and telehealth visits depending on the nature of the appointment. This allows us to limit the number of people in our waiting room without limiting the number of patients we can see per day. Thank you for your understanding!
  • If you have an in-person visit, you must wear a mask.
  • If you do have an in-person visit, please do not bring another person with you unless you are a minor with a parent or guardian, or a caregiver.
  • If you are feeling sick, have a fever, or cough, loss of smell, or other symptoms, please contact us to reschedule your appointment or for a telehealth appointment instead.
M-Care Electronic Health Record Outage

Dear Patients,

We were notified that our electronic health record (EHR) service will not be available for us to use until next week as the company is working diligently to ensure data safety. At this time there is no indication of a data breach, and their team is following all data integrity and appropriate government, regulatory, and notification protocols.

 

All appointments this week have been canceled, however, our team is committed to reopening on Monday, May 3. We may still be operating without our EHR service, but are working to continue care for patients as best we can.

 

We appreciate the understanding all our patients have given us during this time and look forward to serving you again soon!
