Make an appointment

If you would like an appointment at the Gender Clinic for your child, you will need a referral from your child’s primary care doctor. The first visit at the clinic is with our child and adolescent psychiatrist followed by  visits with the pediatric endocrinologist and nurse practitioner. Together, this team of providers will work to develop a treatment plan that fits your child and your family.

Primary care is your first stop for healthcare

Whether you choose a pediatrician for the kids and an internal medicine doc for the adults -- or opt for a family medicine doctor for the entire family -- MaineHealth has the primary care providers to meet your needs.
