Dr. Deutsch is proud to be a transgender woman serving her community. Dr. Deutsch (known to her patients as "Dr. Maddie") has provided primary and hormone care for over 1100 transgender individuals since 2007. Prior to her position at UCSF she has served as the Director of the Transgender Health Program at the LA Gay & Lesbian Center, which she helped found in 2009. She has a once/monthly consultation clinic at the UC-Berkeley Student Health Center (Tang Center) where she is part of a team which has developed transgender services at that facility. She has also consulted with numerous clinics and organizations on the development of transgender health services and had a lead role in the development of the UCSF Primary Care Protocols for Transgender Care (Transhealth.UCSF.edu).
Dr. Deutsch has been my primary care provider for nearly two years now, and even from day one, when I wasn't entirely sure of my goals for transition, I've always felt welcome and cared for by her and her entire staff. The waiting area is comfortable, the staff are friendly, and Dr. Deutsch herself takes the time to counsel me on whatever questions I have, be they about transition or any other aspects of my health.
