The North Memorial Health Advantage

  • We guide transgender customers as he, she, or they proceed through the process of transitioning. Each person’s background is unique, so we take the time to learn their perspective and help them create individualized treatment options.
  • Our clinical pharmacist guides hormonal dosing and conversations about side effects, drug interactions, and risks-vs.-benefits related to medication.
  • Our clinical pharmacist and physicians work together to ensure all your hormonal treatment options are adequately addressed. Our pharmacist can help you navigate other complicated insurance issues and prior authorizations that come with obtaining hormones.
  • As family medicine providers, we see people of all ages, including teens. In some cases, we prescribe puberty suppression agents.
  • Many of our customers have successfully transitioned through the entire process, including hormones and surgeries.
  • You can feel confident you are coming to a clinic that will provide all the elements of primary care, from a team that is comfortable and familiar with transgender needs. This includes culturally sensitive interventions such as annual physicals, breast exams, pap smears, and more.
  • We provide hormonal management and assistance with other elements of transitioning, including referrals to other specialists—such as psychologists and surgeons—who work with transgender customers.
