Transgender Health FAQs with Bill Schaefer, P.A.
We sat down and talked with Bill Schaefer about transgender health and the Transgender Center of Excellence.
There are an estimated 1.6 million transgender people in the U.S., so you are not alone! Gender identity is how individuals perceive themselves and what they call themselves; one's gender identify can be the same or different from their sex assigned at birth. If you would like to talk to someone at the Transgender Center of Excellence, please call Trillium Health at 585.545.7200. Our friendly and welcoming staff will set up an intake appointment to get to know your goals and answer any questions that you might have. Whether you're just curious about microdosing, looking to have top surgery, or beginning your gender transition journey, we can help. We can also set you up with mental health services if appropriate.
