Customized Whole-Body Care
Rochester Regional Health’s Diabetes & Endocrinology team addresses the unique health concerns of transgender and gender-nonconforming individuals. Our specially trained endocrinologists provide culturally competent care, including gender-affirming therapies with hormones and referrals for surgeries to improve your quality of life. We are by your side throughout your entire journey.
Many transgender and gender-nonconforming people still lack access to quality care. Not only do they have increased rates of mental health concerns and suicides, but primary and hormonal care often falls by the wayside for transgender individuals. We are proud to offer the care you need with individualized services including:
Collaboration between a mental health expert, endocrinologist, and potentially a surgeon is essential to ensure all components of your care are being addressed. We will work hard with all of your providers to ensure comprehensive care.
Once a plan is in place, our endocrinologists, Dr. Chavez and Dr. Quartuccio can provide hormone suppression and/ or replacement strategies to help meet your goals. They will also monitor hormone levels and ensure that all potential adverse effects of hormone therapy are screened for.
Our team will work closely with your mental health provider to ensure that both your mental health and medical needs are being addressed.
Will help you navigate the health care system, getting you the care that you deserve.
