The Pediatric GeMS (Gender-Affirming Medicine and Sexual Health) program welcomes all LGBTQ+ people who are under 18 years old and seeking a safe place to receive quality healthcare in a safe and non-judgmental environment.
Pediatric GeMS services include:
• Primary care
• Transgender affirming care (including hormone therapy)
• Referral to behavioral health services
• Additional supports
There is no additional cost for these services. If you have insurance, it will be covered like a regular medical appointment. If you do not have insurance, we provide care regardless of your ability to pay.
If you’re interested in these services, talk to a San Ysidro Health primary care provider about getting a referral. To schedule an appointment at San Ysidro Health, call (619) 662-4100.
