The best hormone therapy for me?

I have been in counciling with therapist from the VA since 2008. I live full time as female. I am a full time student and I am the student president of the student advisory commity. I have not yet begon hormone therapy due to waiting for my dr to get the refferal. My dr is not a gender dr and I want a dr that has experiance with gender patients. I dnt want to just buy the hormones on the internet but that seems to be the only way I will begin getting the results that I should have already been had. I have done my reserch and I kno other T-girls on hormones. But I want a drs reconmendation not just wut I pick and choose. I will get my results one way or an other. I wanted to say that I can tell u pride urself in ur work and it shows. U have sum amazing results!!
Specific_Questions: I have been living full time for a while now and I am having truble figuring out wut would be the best hormone therapy with me? In ur opinion, wut is the best estrogen and androgen to use at wut doses. I have done my research and I am asking from seeing ur patients as close as u do. Wich hormones show the best results?  Nadine

Good morning Nadine,

Sounds like you are well on your way and could go even further with proper medical care

We do hormones.  A letter of therapy clearance is required by a licensed therapist with a doctoral degree.  Our fee is 250 for consultation, and 600 per year to follow you with needed lab tests, office visits, prescriptions, counselling, numerous telephone calls, and medical records documentation.   The 600 fee is billed 3 months after your initial visit. 

Lab tests are an out of pocket expense as is the medication.  We may recommend a laboratory, but you can have them done at a nationally recognized laboratory of your choice.

Sincerely,

Harold M. Reed, M.D.
305-865-2000
