Dr. Reed, I have been a trans-gendered woman for 6 years and pass very well. Have no ambiguities about my transition as I have felt this way since childhood. Can you recommend a transgender savy therapist in Wisconsin? Once I have my letters I’d like to schedule in with you for a MTF vaginoplasty at the Reed Centre in Miami this June Rena PS Could you enclose some MTF vaginoplasty photos of what I may expect?
The longer you have been living as a woman (good test… using the ladies bathroom without any problems), the less likely you need therapy. What you do need are letters of therapy clearance. 2 letters are required for irreversible genital surgery such as orchiectomy or vaginoplasty. While some patients have already seen a therapist, and for those we say, allow your therapist to update the letter with specific mention re: the operation you are seeking. Otherwise, we have a list of therapists who will interview you over the phone with skype. Here’s the list
Please call me with any questions or concerns,
Harold M. Reed, M.D.
