FAQ

How frequently will I need to come into the office?
There will be 2-3 initial visits to discuss your goals and options for dosing and type of testosterone administration. We will also get a set of initial labs and talk about all of the risks, benefits, permanent changes, & reversible changes associated with testosterone therapy. After getting started you’ll need to have labs done every 3 months during the first year and after that labs will just be once a year.
How accessible will Sarah be for questions or dosage changes or symptom management during my treatment?
I am available between routine visits for in-person visits, or telehealth visits, or via portal message as needed for questions or concerns.
What if I don’t like needles?

Testosterone gel is one route that many transgender, non-binary, and gender-fluid people use to take testosterone for gender affirming hormone therapy. The gel is applied to and absorbed through the skin (transdermal) and can induce more gradual changes than injectable testosterone.
