Are you accepting Medicare

Dear Dr. Reed,

As you know Medicare is now paying for transsexual surgery.  I would like to have my surgery done by you based on recent experience of some friends in California.



Dear Tabetha,

Yes, Medicare is paying for transsexual surgery, and even though we do not accept assignment because the amount is very low (about $1,400) for 5 hours of work, to include being with you an additional hour or so to confer with OR staff, anesthesia, keep an eye on you in the recovery room, and visiting you every day for a good 6 to 7 days.

However, the plus is that Medicare will pay for the hospital bill and anesthesia services.  A big savings. We will reduce our fees by several thousands to make it affordable for you, and you keep the Medicare check.

Please call Anne our amiable office manager and hopefully she’ll bring a smile to your face.

Look at our web-site and see photographic examples  Hope you like what you see.


Harold M. Reed, M.D.
