Braeswood Endocrinology is a direct-care endocrinology clinic specializing in the medical needs of the transgender community. Dr. Zwiener is a member of WPATH and prescribes masculinizing/feminizing hormone therapy (HRT) under an informed consent model. She is happy to help guide her patients through their social and legal transitions, and will provide both resources and letters supporting surgeries and name/gender marker changes. For her patients who live far from Houston, she offers follow-up visits via telemedicine (phone call or video chat). Her practice focuses on achieving the best possible masculinization or feminization as safely and comfortably as possible. For this reason, she prefers that her transfeminine patients use injectable estradiol (rather than pills), she prescribes progesterone, and she minimizes the use of anti-androgens.
I do see all general endocrinology patients as well (for example, for diabetes, thyroid problems, Cushing’s disease, etc). My clinic is a safe space for anyone in the LGBTQ community.
