Pediatric GeMS

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.
