Hers and Hims were founded with the goal of getting more people to be open and honest about their health. For too long there has been a stigma around talking about fairly common issues. Unfortunately, it can be difficult for marginalized communities to access the health resources and information they specifically need. We want to spread awareness and assist people who are having trouble finding professional help. Researching and searching the web can be exhausting and draining. To make things a bit easier, we researched and compiled our own guide to trans-friendly clinics across the United States by region. In regards to transgender issues, the Western United States is fairly progressive.
Who We Are
In addition to a full range of primary care services, our warm and welcoming Transgender Health Program providers offer:. At the Center, you also have the benefit of providers work as one team and under one roof, so if you need counseling, your doctor can consult with a Center therapist about your situation, just as your doctor can consult with Center pharmacists, nutritionists, and other relevant staff about your unique needs. If you are uninsured, we can help you get insurance through Covered California or determine your eligibility for medical and drug assistance programs. Schrader Blvd. Los Angeles, CA
