Client’s Journey at Trans Health Klinic

Transfer of Care

  • Once the client is at a stable dose of their hormone therapy, care will be transferred to their primary care provider
  • Trans health practitioners will send a formal transfer of care letter to primary care providers which details trans health lab monitoring and primary care screening guidelines, and providers are more than welcome to seek further consultation about hormone monitoring and prescribing

Consultation

  • If you are a health care provider seeking consultation for hormone therapy adjustment or dosing, please fax a letter to Klinic or send an e-consult
  • Since practitioners utilize a shared care model, address the consultation letter as, Attention: Trans Health Klinic Practitioners
  • The available practitioner will consult with you
