November is Transgender Health and Awareness Month. In recognition, new transgender medical patients interested in starting Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) may receive a voucher code for a FREE basic exam, initial labs to prepare for HRT and a follow-up visit to receive lab results.
To receive a voucher number and schedule your appointment, one can call (305) 576-1234 ext. 470 (English) or ext. 471 (Spanish). The voucher is ONLY valid for new medical patients without private or government insurance that are transgender.
According to Sheryl Zayas, DO, Primary Care Physician with Care Resource, “Finding a knowledgeable, ‘trans-positive’ service provider… one who understands and supports the identity of transgender individuals-is extremely important in ensuring a transgender person receives proper care. Medical care at Care Resource focuses on the body parts a person has, whether those are congruent with the gender identity or not. Make Care Resource your ‘Trans-Positive” medical home for care TODAY!”
Care Resource is committed to the health and well-being of the transgender community. Care Resource’s goal is to provide quality, compassionate, and informed care for our transgender patients. We serve transgender people and people at various places on the spectrum of gender identity and expression. We are committed to delivering health care in our region and we proudly work together with our transgender community to lead the way in eliminating barriers to care.
