Becoming a Patient

At the Center for Transgender Medicine and Surgery (CTMS) we review cases that come in on a referral basis and determine eligibility prior to scheduling surgery. Each case is different and our initial and presurgical new patient pathway allows our multidisciplinary health care team to review each case individually in order to properly assess and determine course of treatment.


If you are interested in meeting with our team at the CTMS, you can contact us directly to set up an appointment to learn more about our services. We also accept referrals from community-based organizations, medical/specialty providers, and mental health providers.

Initial Assessment

Our staff Social Worker meets with each potential patient to learn more about the patient’s background and assess each patient’s needs for services. After our social worker reviews your case, we determine if a primary care provider is needed for an evaluation. Our Program Director then conducts an initial screening to determine eligibility for the program and refers for specialty care where appropriate. Meanwhile, we determine insurance coverage and obtain information on co-payments and prior authorization, and ensure financial eligibility.

Specialty Care

We take a holistic, multidisciplinary approach to care and refer patients to specialists in the areas of endocrinology, gynecology, psychiatry, surgery, and urology. Your team of specialists work together to make sure you are ready for surgery. Electrolysis services are available in our outpatient facility.

Surgery Approval and Scheduling

Our team will work with you to address any concerns and work towards the goal of full preparedness for surgery. After your case is reviewed by our team of specialists, we determine if you’re ready for surgery and then proceed to scheduling at one of the facilities in the Mount Sinai Health System.
