Dr. Honig might be okay if you're seeking gender-related care, but do not see him if you are just a trans person who happens to need a urologist for a urological issue.
(Trigger warning: possible sexual assault)
I am a non-op trans person with a urological condition that I've had for years. I went to see this doctor for a flare up, because I could not get in to see my usual urologist, and he wanted to spend the entire appointment asking intrusive questions about my genitals that were completely unrelated to my condition. He ended up doing an internal pelvic exam, during which he complimented my clitoral growth while penetrating me with his finger. I felt extremely violated, and when I asked him what the purpose of the exam was, he could not give me an answer -- just spluttered about how he respects trans people and treats all patients the same. (Though I doubt he's ever complimented the size of a cis dude's dick while checking their prostate? But maybe he does, who knows.) He ended up prescribing the wrong dose of the medication that I went to him to get in the first place, so I was left wondering if I had just been sexually assaulted and without care for my condition.
I would never go back to see this doctor, and would never recommend him to anyone in the trans community. I can't say for sure if he fetishizes trans patients, but I do feel confident saying that he is unable to see trans people beyond our genitals.
