I've been seeing Kate for my HRT for almost a year and am finally switching to a different provider because every experience I've had with her has been negative. She is constantly fat shaming her patients, has misgendered me multiple times, pressured me into getting a pap smear and then making an inappropriate comment about my genitals, and was so rude to me at my last visit that I left in tears. She is disorganized- during my last visit I was just there to get birth control and she treated it like I was there for HRT, just assuming I was because I'm trans rather than actually looking at my intake information to confirm that. When she was asking about my sexual activity she implied that my girlfriend was likely to cheat on me because she's transgender and then she misgendered her. She insisted that I get STD tested despite me telling her I was just tested. She badgered me about my health and told me that I'm likely to die young if I don't make life changes when she didn't even do a physical, she was just making assumptions based on my appearance because in a recent physical I was told that I'm in perfect health. She actually said "what am I going to have to do to motivate you? Do I need to hit you upside the head?" And made a motion like she was going to hit me. She was "joking" but it was a very inappropriate joke to make about a patient. I've spoken to many others who have had a similar experience with her and I wouldn't recommend her to anyone.
I had a great experience at the Raleigh Planned Parenthood. Kate Swift-Scanlan was knowledgeable and respectful, and she was able to help me get started on HRT. The staff was really helpful as well and the intake forms were trans-inclusive.
