Gender-Affirming Healthcare

Dr. Venessa Madrigal addresses your physical, mental and emotional health to support you in your journey whoever you are, however you present, whichever pronouns you use, and whomever you love.

Whether you are seeking general healthcare from a queer, gender-affirming provider or seeking transition, Dr. Madrigal is trained to support you.

There are a number of gender-affirming interventions for those seeking transition such as hormone therapy, surgery, hair removal, facial feminization, tracheal shave, modification of speech and communication, and/or behavioral adaptations such as genital tucking or packing, or chest binding.
