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.

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.
