The Rochester Center for Sexual Wellness does not provide primary care, or general urology and gynecology services. When necessary, we work closely with other physicians including urologists and gynecologists to develop treatment plans that will meet your needs.
At the current time we are not providing gender alignment treatment. We are fortunate in this community to have many resources for trans* care and will be happy to refer you to one of our colleagues.
What to expect
Your initial consultation fee will cover two visits-- an initial information gathering visit and a treatment planning visit.
At your first visit: You can expect your first visit to last about an hour and a half. Dr. Kranz will gather information about your concern, including your medical history and conduct a biopsychosocial assessment. A physical exam may also be conducted if there is important diagnostic or treatment information to be gained. We will alsways discuss the reasons for the physical exam and it is never mandatory. You may be provided with a laboratory request form to complete lab work or other testing prior to your follow up visit. We will discuss collaboration with your other medical and mental health providers. If appropriate, and only with your written consent, Dr. Kranz will obtain information from other providers prior to your next visit. Typically there is some information provided during this first visit and sometimes Dr. Kranz will ask you to do some exercises at home betwee visits, or reccomend books or other resources for further information.
At your second visit: Dr. Kranz will discuss the results of your blood work and any diagnostics she may have completed. She will present you with treatment options that are tailored to your personal needs. Partners or spouses are always welcome at your visits.
