WPATH Standards of Care Yes

Transgender hormone and surgery referral letters, Transgender related mental health.
Gabi is a nice person. I didn't need any therapy from her, going to her was merely a necessary formality because the state required two mental health professionals to sign off on surgery probably due to consent requirements.
This was very annoying, as I'd already had medical treatment from my primary care doctor, OBGYN, and had pre-surgical counseling with my surgeon, and so this was essentially two extra (and potentially costly and time consuming) layers of bureaucracy.
Fortunately, Gabi was very understanding of this, and was able to fit me in for a quick assessment ("yep, you're transgender all right") and was happy to sign off on a letter stating that yes, this person is transgender, and yes, they are a good candidate for surgery.
She, frankly thought it silly that three medical professionals already had an established working relationship with me, and that the state still wanted more people to sign off on it.
She was very happy to fit me in quickly, and at low cost, (I was low income and she very kindly lowered the cost to very affordable) and saw me and got a letter written all within a couple weeks.
