Trans Health Services

Finding a trans-informed medical provider is important. Transgender individuals face a unique range of issues and health disparities, and we at Family Health Centers of San Diego pride ourselves on our commitment to providing quality, trans-informed services to the community.

Being trans-informed includes educating our office staff about transgender issues and etiquette in order to provide a professional medical environment. We strive to ensure our patients receive quality care through a direct and long-term relationship with their chosen provider and health care team. This team is respectful of, and responsive to, individual patient preferences. When you call or message us, you will be directed to our confidential, trans-friendly staff who understands the needs of the transgender community.

Transgender Patient Advocate Program

The Transgender Patient Advocate Program is part of our program for LGBTQ health to provide advocacy and support for trans-identified, gender non-conforming and genderqueer patients at FHCSD.

Transgender patient advocates assist patients in finding appropriate providers, making appointments and ensuring optimal patient care for transgender-identified individuals in our clinics. All individuals, including those of non-conforming gender identities, are welcomed into this program.
