For persons unable to see me in Seattle, I also offer telephone consultations. A telephone consultation can provide you with personalized information concerning transsexualism and gender identity issues.
All consultations with me are completely confidential. I will do my best to provide accurate information and useful counsel in a professional manner. Please note, however, that for legal purposes, a telephone consultation does not establish a doctor-patient relationship with me. Technically, I will provide you with medical education and counseling rather than medical advice. One reason for this limitation is that physicians in my state cannot practice medicine solely via electronic communications, especially across state or international borders. Nevertheless, I treat all communications with my telephone consultation clients as confidential, just as though we were in a conventional doctor-patient relationship.
In addition to the diagnosis and treatment of gender identity problems, we can also discuss issues such as employment, relationships, children, and sexuality. Although I am happy to help my clients work through any issues involving actual gender transition, I am not able to provide written recommendations for hormone therapy or sex reassignment surgery on the basis of telephone contact alone.
Telephone consultations last 60 minutes and cost $100. All telephone consultations must be paid for in advance. If you wish to mail your payment, please send it to:
