Hi Jazlyn,

We do MTF 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.

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. For those receiving estrogens, the minimum laboratory assessment should consist of a liver function tests, and complete blood count with reassessment at 6 and 12 months and annually thereafter. A pretreatment prolactin level should be obtained and repeated at 1, 2, and 3 years. If hyperprolactemia does not occur during this time, no further measurements are necessary. Biologic males undergoing estrogen
treatment should be monitored for breast cancer and encouraged to engage in routine self-examination. As they age, they should be monitored for prostatic cancer.

Cordially.
