Help (me find a doctor in the US)

Comments Off on Help (me find a doctor in the US)




So, in about 6 weeks, assuming I get a visa on Tuesday, we’re moving to the USA… Washington State, semi-specifically. Which is big and scary all by itself, then there’s the whole ‘needing a doctor’ thing.

We’ve looked for GLBTQ friendly doctors (most importantly for me, the T bit of that) , and there are some in Seattle, and some in Olympia, but we’re looking at Port Townsend, and both of those are a bit inconvenient. They’re not totally un-do-able… My general health at the moment is good enough that I’m not deeply angsty about the doctor being a trip away, but if anyone knows of any good T-friendly docs in the Olympic Peninsula region, it’d be really handy.

Essentially, I need someone to give me HRT, and keep a loose eye on my liver function (been fine for a few years now :) ).

Help me tumblr, you’re my only hope :)

Additional: We may be going to Mount Vernon or Bellingham… so suggestions for there too, would be good.

Signal boost! Anyone know?

The only Oly friend I’ve talked about this with is seeing a doc in Portland, for reasons, but I know there’s at least one Bellinghamster on here with a good doc rec.

If you end up in Port Townsend, Jefferson Healthcare lists “recognized as a “Leader in LGBT Healthcare Equality” by the
Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation” as a point of pride on their site – but I know that isn’t much help in finding an individual transgender-issue-competent and friendly doctor.

Funnily enough, that’s the group I was hoping to get a job at, if we land in Port Townsend. :)
