Comprehensive and Affirming Care

The Albany Med Health System is committed to providing comprehensive care to transgender, nonbinary, and gender expansive individuals. We recognize that accessing health care as a gender diverse person can be difficult. We offer compassionate and informed primary and specialty care, as well as gender affirming care.

We have a team of knowledgeable and welcoming professionals who provide trans-competent care. Our collaborative, multidisciplinary approach ensures that patients in our center see providers who communicate with each other to provide the best, most comprehensive care possible in a gender-affirming environment.  We work closely with health care professionals across several specialties, including Obstetrics & Gynecology, EndocrinologyPlastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Urology,  Primary Care & Family Medicine, and Psychology.

For other resources, such as social services and support groups, we recommend the following:

In keeping with our academic mission, we are also involved in the following research endeavors:

  • Understanding the lived experiences of transgender and gender-diverse individuals
  • Incorporation of LGBTQ+ care curriculum to medical trainees
  • Best practice for use of gender affirming language in gynecologic and obstetric care

If you would be interested in participating in any research studies, please contact us.
