Dr. Bird took the time to answer my questions as best as possible, while also acknowledging that not everyone responds the same way to the same medicine, and preparing me for the possibility that I might have to try different approaches to my problem.

the medical assistant who was part of my visit misgendered me and my partner - called us "ladies" after I just spoke with Dr. Bird about medical transition with testosterone :(

This doc has been increasingly lax when I see her. She did not ask about current symptoms of diagnosis and I felt shuffled through. Appearance was unprofessional.

I was worried about a medical procedure and brought my husband. As it turns out the procedure was not necessary. It would have been good to know this before the visit.

I don't "phone" the office with medical questions. That wastes staff time and takes days. You may want to change your question to ask if people use the portal to send questions.

After the diagnosis of the problem and receiving a print-out explaining problem, it would be nice to have time to ask the doctor a question. (Follow-up). Note: my OBGYN had retired and this was a first time appt. with this doctor.

I was very pleased with Dr. Bird and how very helpful she was and also her assistant. being a Trans man going into a women's clinic can be very scary and uncomfortable. dr. Bird and her team made me feel comfortable and relaxed about being there.

I went into the office to have a recheck ultrasound for my [details deleted to protect privacy]. I waited in the lobby for 30 minutes after my appointment time. The ultrasound went as planned, and I appreciated that the person doing the ultrasound asked me if I was feeling fine during the procedure, made me feel comfortable, and asked me if I had any questions and offered to show me the ultrasound images. During the ultrasound I found out a second cyst had formed. I then waited for Dr. Bird. She came in seeming rushed, immediately said that my cysts needed to come out, and barely discussed findings, how I felt, and if I had any questions. Of course, this point I'm not sure what to say or what to ask, as I'm shocked by the news of a second cyst and the need for surgery. She seems to want an answer from me immediately if I want surgery, and I feel a bit pushed to say yes. I ask about my breast pain and she quickly dismisses it and says she'll get some bloodwork going. She mentions a depo birth control injection, and walks out. Next the nurse comes in takes my blood, and then I'm free to go. I was assuming Dr. Bird was coming back in to ask me if I had any questions and to clarify anything we spoke about and what the plan was next. She maybe spent 10-15 minutes in the room with me, possibly less. I came home with a ton of questions and unsure I even made the right decision by just saying yes to a surgery I had no information about. I felt dismissed and uniformed, and like there was no severity to my issues.

Dr. Bird seems like the most knowledgeable trans healthcare provider I have ever had. Dr. Bird has an office culture that is free from shame and bias and they try to be inclusive. I have a hard time getting specific medical concerns MANAGED by the office, I can get the concern recognized validated and believed by doctor Bird, But I feel like I have to do a lot of directing to fill in the gaps between Dr. Bird and myself (the patient). I'm fortunate I remember what the doctor suggests because I end up having to reconstruct my entire interaction because somehow the info doesn't make it to MA [name deleted to protect privacy] or gets misinterpreted. But yeah, If I could come in with a problem and have a solution result, I would be so happy. I can come in with a problem and end up with a lab and no further info or info that says that there's no further action going to be taken. ...so we got the lab result, so how are you going to treat the problem? I will get a note that says maybe my Rx was changed as a result, But i don't know why or for how long, or what to look for with the dose change... I love getting lab info, but I really don't care about the lab if my care plan doesn't address the concerns.

Being a transgender male is new to me, I had a ton of questions. Dr. Bird was totally patient with me, and answered all my questions thoroughly. I left feeling positive and confident of her ability to guide me through the process. I am very grateful to her.

Dr. Bird and her staff consistently give me the best medical care I have ever received, hands-down. The only improvement I would make is perhaps revising the intake sheet I'm given upon check-in. It's a list of menstruation and vagina-related questions that were mostly irrelevant to my anatomy and definitely shocking/anxiety-inducing (1st q: WHEN WAS YOUR LAST PERIOD? FLOW: MILD? MODERATE? HEAVY?). I know it's a gyno office, but maybe trans patients who are just there for HRT management could have a different questionairre? Anyway it's a small thing; I am always treated with care and respect by staff esp. Dr. Bird.

Having my worries addressed has been put as a top priority. There could be more explanation on procedures before hand. For example when I had my IUD placed there was no talk regarding the possibility of cramps and intense pain for 2-3 days after the placement.

It was amazing to see a provider that A) actually understood my issues and B) took them seriously. This was hands down the best OBGYN experience I have ever had.
