The Gender clinic provides comprehensive services for transgender, gender expansive and gender-non conforming youth

 

The Sex Development clinic offers support for children and adolescents with differences of sex development. Sex development occurs in stages. A fetus has many opportunities to develop along a path that is not the typical one for a boy or a girl. When sex development follows a less common path, the result is a difference of sex development (DSD)

 

If your child needs to be evaluated, call or text our office at (915) 642-9444 for an appointment or you can use our secure online appointment request form.
