"We strive to provide appropriate, up to date, evidence-based care for our trans patients, including preventive services, behavioral health services, hormone therapy, general medical care, and referral to community resources. We recognize that there is a huge gap in healthcare that is accessible and appropriate for transgender patients in the United States and especially in the South." - Jennifer Abbott, MD
