Gender-Affirming Care

At LifeLong Medical Care, we know that gender-affirming care is a crucial and lifesaving pillar of primary care. We are proud to provide gender-affirming care to our Bay Area communities. Many of our providers are members of the LGBTQIA+ community who understand the unique challenges faced by individuals seeking gender-affirming care. We work alongside our patients to meet their needs and achieve their goals related to whole-person transgender health. Above all, we provide accessible, equitable, safe, and trauma-informed care that attends to the needs of people of all gender identities, including folks who are nonbinary, two spirit, agender, gender fluid, and more.
