Transgender care can involve several treatments or services. Some transgender people seek professional medical assistance to transition from one sex to another. For example, transgender men have unique health care needs that can only specialists like those at Southwest Family Medicine Associates can properly address. Many transgender men who are born female at birth still have female organs and need the same care as many women for specific women’s health issues.
