For FTMs in the Northeast Ohio area: Have any of you had any luck finding physicians at the Cleveland Clinic who work with transgender patients?

I have been on T for a little over two years, and currently get my T from a doctor 2.5 hrs away, but I'm looking for something closer to home. My options are limited, since I'm uninsured, and Cleveland Clinic would be ideal since I can get financial coverage through their system.

Try Dr. Ng at the LGBT Pride Clinic. It's run through MetroHealth and not Cleveland Clinic BUT they have similar financing programs to help those who are uninsured.

I don't know of any affiliated with the Cleveland Clinic, but Dr. Murphy is another doctor at MetroHealth (he does not work at the LGBT Pride Clinic though like Dr. Ng). I originally was seeing Dr. Murphy but I really did not like him much. No major problems with him, I just did not feel comfortable with him. I'm currently seeing Dr. Nichols in Cortland (which is about 2-2.5 hours away from me so I know how you feel about the drive...) and he has been awesome so far. I have heard that there is a doctor (Dr. James Rudick I believe) who works with trans patients at Mercy in Canton, but I can't confirm that.

When I started T in 2008 MetroHealth had a really good program if you were uninsured and needed financial help, however I think they have since cut it down a lot. I lived in Stark County and was able to see Dr. Murphy for free but I think now they limit their free services to Cuyahoga County. I don't know this for sure, there's a chance they might not be limiting it anymore.
