Transgender Health Q&A
What is transgender health?
Transgender health is an area of medicine that specializes in managing the health needs of transgender individuals.
Though transgender people have many of the same health needs as cisgender people, they may not get the services they need because of a previous bad experience or lack of understanding from other providers.
South Florida Care Center is dedicated to providing high-quality, patient-centered care where you and your health needs come first. The team includes highly skilled practitioners who specialize in meeting the health care needs of the LGBTQ+ community.
What are transgender health services?
South Florida Care Center is a primary care practice that manages all of your general health needs. Transgender health services include:
Annual physicals are the most important health visit of the year. South Florida Care Center provides comprehensive transgender physicals that focus on your physical and mental well-being.
They review your current health concerns and needs, perform a physical examination, screen for health conditions, and provide recommendations to help you stay healthy.
Transitioning is also an important transgender health service. The team at South Florida Care Center helps you get the treatments and services you need as you become the gender you feel on the inside. Transitioning services might include hormone therapy or surgery.
Sexually transmitted disease (STD) testing
South Florida Care Center also provides comprehensive and confidential STD testing and treatment. STDs are a major public health issue and affect all types of people. Getting tested is the best way for you to stay on top of your sexual health and well-being.
Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP)
PrEP is a medication that helps prevent HIV in people at high risk of getting HIV. The team at South Florida Care Center may recommend PrEP if you engage in activities that put you at greater risk of getting HIV, or your sexual partner has HIV.
