Dr. Paul Worrell, D.O. 8668 Skillman Street Dallas, TX 75243
Dr. Worell works Dallas and was the first doctor who I went to for my HRT. He didn’t properly monitor and react to my hormone levels, and at the end of being with him for over 7 months, my testosterone levels were 3x higher than they started. Getting as high as 4x what they started with at one point. Overall I would not recommend anyone going to him as he is not qualified or well knowledgeable when it comes to transgender care. He is a nice guy and seems like a nice doctor who wants to help transgender people but wanting to help and knowing how to help are two very different things. I never once got asked about what pronouns I would prefer or what name I would prefer. On my therapist note that I gave him before I started hormones, it said what my preferred name was. At the time he should have asked if I wanted to use that name. He doesn’t know of or do the powers method.
Dr. Jennifer Cohen, M.D. 8877 Harry Hines Blvd, Dallas, TX 75235
Dr. Cohen is the second doctor that I went to. She no longer works in Dallas as she moved back to her home state of Connecticut. She is a really nice lady who is also really knowledgeable in trans related medicine as well as general medicine. Whenever I came to her with a plan of what I wanted to do with my hormones and overall where I wanted to be, she was glad to help me get there. She believes that HRT is more of a mutual agreement with the patient and the doctor, so if you would like to have a specific dosage or route of administration, she is more than open to talk or give you those resources. She told me what she was comfortable doing and not comfortable doing because she didn’t have the proper information to do that, which is really nice and respectable. She was more than open to testing for the specific levels and hormones that I wanted to test for. She doesn’t do the powers method but knows of it, however doesn’t offer it to her patients on the basis of not having enough knowledge. At my first appointment with her, I was asked about my preferred name and pronouns and after that, I wasn’t misgendered by her once. Overall I would recommend her as a trans doctor.
Maggie White, FNP-BC, 3701 Kirby Dr # 1230, Huston, Tx 77098
(713) 526- 0005
Maggie white is the final doctor with who I have experience. Maggie is another kind lady who works with a good chunk of transgender people. The clinic that she works for is an LGBTQ+ clinic and about 15% of her patients are trans. Considering that trans people do not even make up 1% in the U.S.A, that is a pretty high number. She does do the power method and just like Dr.Cohen she believes that hrt should be a mutual decision between the patient and the doctor; if you want to change the route of administration or the dosage, she is more than happy to do that for you. As well as testing for whatever you might want to check. I live about 4 hours away from Huston, but she does televisits and you are able to get your labs done at a local place and then have them sent over to her for your convenience. In the paperwork you have to do before your first appointment, I was asked about my preferred name and my preferred pronouns and haven’t been misgendered by her once after that. Overall she is a really nice lady who is knowledgeable in transgender medicine who I would personally recommend. She does know of and does do the powers method as well.
