Our team of experienced professionals is excited to play a pivotal role in empowering our patients to embrace their authentic selves and lead fulfilling lives.
What Is Gender-Affirming Care?
Gender-affirming care, also known as gender-affirming therapy or gender-affirming medical treatment, refers to a range of medical, psychological, and social interventions designed to support individuals in aligning their physical and emotional well-being with their gender identity.
This care is specifically tailored to transgender and non-binary individuals who may experience distress or discomfort due to incongruence between their gender identity and their assigned sex at birth.
Why Is Gender-Affirming Care Important?
Gender-affirming care is essential to ensuring the well-being and quality of life for transgender and non-binary individuals. It acknowledges and respects each individual’s unique gender identity and provides them with the tools and support they need to live authentically and comfortably.
At Harmony Healthcare, we care about our community’s needs and want to offer services you may not otherwise find in the area. We do this in a welcoming and compassionate environment, so you’ll feel comfortable walking through our doors.
What’s Involved In Our Gender Identity Care Services?
If you have begun your gender journey, we are here to support you in the following ways.
- Hormone Therapy – Our clinic can provide maintenance hormone replacement therapy (HRT) to aid in physical changes that align with an individual’s gender identity, such as body hair distribution, voice pitch, and breast development.
- Mental Health Support – Therapy and counseling services can address the psychological and emotional challenges that individuals may experience during their gender transition. Counseling is important and a mandatory requirement in the state of Florida prior to starting HRT. We can help you find counselors who are accepting patients undergoing HRT.
- Social Support – Navigating social challenges and discrimination that can arise during a transition is crucial in gender identity care. We can help you find organizations to assist with challenges like changes in relationships, workplace environments, and legal documentation.
When Is Gender-Affirming Care In Orlando Offered?
Harmony Healthcare offers gender-affirming care in our Orlando clinic on the second Wednesday of every month. Dr. Varesh R. Patel handles these visits personally and will increase the offering frequency as needed.
What Other Services Do We Offer?
Harmony Healthcare offers STI testing and treatment at our Orlando, Tampa, and Kissimmee clinics. We have also begun a primary care practice in our Orlando location so you can manage not only your sexual health but your overall health as well. Our skilled nurse practitioners will work with you to address your health concerns and dedicate time to your primary care needs.
Our non-medical services include food, transportation, and counseling resource assistance. Can’t make it into the clinic? We offer Telehealth appointments that only require a smartphone or a computer to visit with our office staff.
