She is a published author on transgender and sex worker health and is a nationally recognized leader in both fields.
Someone who I trusted to advise me on maintaining my health and someone who specializes in transgender primary care. Zil empowers her patients to take care of their own health on their terms and holds to harm reduction practices. I would recommend her previously, had she provided me with proper follow up for my prescription prior authorization (she did not call my insurer despite asking her to follow through for three weeks). I have since left her care to a provider that is more responsive.
Zil is AMAZING! She's the first doctor I've ever been to who just gets it - no look of panic when I tell them yes I have sex with men (just not cis men!) and yes I don't use birth control or condoms. It's such a relief to never have to spend extra time and emotional energy explaining my life and sexual practices to her cause she really just gets it. She also always asks for consent to touch me and explains very clearly what she's doing when examining me. Zil is a truly kind and wonderful person and I'm so glad to have her as my PCP!
amazing. i saw her based on the review here and she's the best. i found out that Callen Lorde had been over-dosing me for a decade. Zil is taking care of me and I totally trust her The staff there was great, quick and technologically up to date. Zil know's what she's talking about and it's nice to have a doctor who wants to help.
I highly recommend Zil. She works with lots of transgender patients and is very knowledgeable about transgender health. She's also understanding and easy to talk to.
