COVID-19

Your safety is our top concern

We know that you want to feel confident that you are entering a safe environment when you come to Lifespan Physician Group offices for care. That’s why we have made some changes in response to COVID-19.

If you have an appointment scheduled, please review this information before coming to visit us. 

A Safe, Affirming, and Respectful Environment

The Adult Gender and Sexuality Behavioral Health Program is unique because it focuses specifically on the behavioral health needs of adult transgender and nonbinary individuals, and is led by a psychiatrist with a background in providing hormonal, medical, and psychiatric care to transgender patients across their lifespan. The program is well positioned to collaborate with hormonal prescribers in order to provide comprehensive care.   

The program offers psychosocial support, behavioral health, and wellness services for anyone over 18 years of age who wishes to explore issues associated with their gender identity. The goal of this innovative program is to provide care in a safe, affirming, and respectful environment that welcomes gender exploration across the spectrum, including nonbinary identities. The program follows the standards set forth in the World Professional Association for Transgender Health (WPATH) Standard of Care.
